    Middle School Initiative

    Burris Laboratory has created a new middle school initiative called “IMPACT.” IMPACT is a transcurricular program where students are blended in classrooms from sixth through eighth grade. Students learn skills and disciplines through a wide variety of content and units. Each student can find their passion and love of learning through inquiry. Students can individualize their learning, have a say in what they learn, and create a positive experience in the classroom that best fits the individual student.
