Middle School 6-8

Middle School Academics and Curriculum IP is a researched based and Christian faith school. The outstanding faculty and staff at IICP are exceptional both professionally and personally. In addition, our approach to curriculum is particularly excellent. Middle School Immersion program uses a combination Christian program Lifepac and advanced resources in the curriculum to enhance vocabulary in all languages. The Middle School Bible curriculum is currently a combination of Purposeful Design and a curriculum that was developed by IP’s MS Bible Department Head. The 7th and 8th grade are required to take Spanish I and II rather than the standard Middle School Spanish due to immersion experience. Excellent computer integration helps prepare our students academically.
