Critical thinking & Executive Function
Executive functioning is another essential area of work for the middle schooler. Throughout the grades, the students have increasing individual responsibility for their work. The ability to manage their time and hand in quality assignments in a timely manner is vital to their future success. We hone these skills in the middle school program by increasing students’ individual responsibility under the mentoring eyes of the teaching team.

Come to an Event
Expeditions are an essential part of an Urban Prairie education. Students participate in trips outside the classroom (weekly in 8th grade) in order to better know and understand the city in we live. Through connecting with the people and places around them, our students learn how to be a good neighbor and citizen and how to affect positive change.
