Core Classes –A Team Model

Suffern Middle School is known for the academic concern and personal caring demonstrated by the staff for the many and diversified needs and orientations of the students attending our school.  Helping every student develop his or her potential is the essential purpose of our academic program.  English, math, science, and social studies are scheduled as a team.  Each team is responsible for the same group of students.  Common planning and meeting times are scheduled so that teachers, counselors, and parents may convene to discuss a particular student’s performance and if needed, devise a plan to best meet the needs of the student.
