The Irving Middle School teaches students how to work together and how to find their individual voice. We explicitly teach students the values embodied in our WARRIOR mascot (Willpower, Awareness, Readiness, Responsibility, Integrity, Openness, Respect) and re-inforce their development of these values through a merit system that recognizes acts that support the values.
We prepare our students for educational success by providing coherent instruction in organization, giving them rigorous intellectual tasks to complete, and nurturing their compassion and sensitivity to the world around them. We use the AVID program to teach our students how to complete their classwork and homework efficiently.
We use the arts to develop students’ individual voices in drama, dance, and visual arts. Students sample the arts in sixth grade and then select a major which they focus upon for seventh and eight grades.
Our extended day allows us to keep students focused upon rigorous achievement while giving them the support they need to succeed.
Finally, our anti-bullying program ensures that students and staff work together for the safety of the students.
