• Language Arts 

    Our vision at Endeavour Middle School is to empower every student to appreciate the power of literature, to communicate effectively and appropriately, and to learn the necessary skills to be productive citizens.  Our goal is to provide engaging texts with rich vocabulary so that students’ interests are piqued and they enjoy reading, writing, and learning about the world around them.

    • Students will meet the reading, writing, listening and speaking standards by the end of the year.
    • Students will build perseverance in writing for longer periods of time.
    • Students will develop empathy, respectful communication, and emotional intelligence.
