The team concept benefits students by providing support in the transition between elementary school and middle school. Teachers on a team have a common planning period, which they use daily to ensure that student successes are recognized, student concerns are addressed, and interdisciplinary planning is implemented.

Teams design interdisciplinary activities that make connections between content areas and increase the relevance of the curriculum. Grade level teams consist of core academic teachers, guidance counselor, and special education personnel.
