Middle School at Hazel Glen College frames the Middle Years of Schooling as Years 5 – 8 within its K-12 continuum. This is a reflection of the developmental needs of students and their families within our contemporary Australian context. The Middle School Program at Hazel Glen College can be conceptualised as a two stage program in which the developmental needs of our students are catered for: • Stage 1 – Years 5 and 6 • Stage 2 – Years 7 and 8.
Our focus is on educating the individual. Our teaching model will maximise student learning outcomes by personalising the learning for each and every student. Our students learn best from a variety of sources and have access to multiple teachers in varying group sizes that match the student’s individual interests, needs and learning goals. Each class in most subjects is broken into three segments to ensure we cater to each student’s learning style – in small groups, large groups and in private study.
A typical class is made up of:
• Instruction with a clear learning intention
• Independent learning
• Cooperative and collaborative learning
