Our Middle Years Program

Our Middle Years Program prepares students in Grades 7 to 8 for high school. Upon completing elementary school education, curriculum expects more independence and responsibility from students as they enter into a more intensive part of their journey. At The Maples Academy, we direct our attention towards making these middle years a supportive, comprehensive preparation for high school and university. Students hone and expand on skills learned in the IB Primary Years Programme, and are introduced to new skills that will guide them through high school and life beyond.

In order to our prepare students for the rotary-type environment of high school and university, students have core teachers, who teach the subjects of Math, English, Science, Geography and History, and they have specialists, who teach them French, Visual & Performing Arts and Physical Education.

The curriculum focuses on the rapidly growing dependence on technology, including social media, for global communication and information. The Maples Academy recognizes how important it is for young adults to have relevant, modern-world skills to navigate themselves in our ever-changing technological culture.
