Stanley-Boyd Middle School strives to maintain a high level of academic achievement for all students. The students and staff are proud of our school and the accomplishments we have achieved.
The middle school at Stanley-Boyd consists of approximately 150 students in grades seven and eight. Parents and staff believe that all students can learn at a high level. Professional development opportunities, updating curriculum to meet state and national standards, and the development of student learning communities are an integral part of this belief. The district recently implemented a "no zero" policy to ensure the success of all students. A pyramid of intervention provides specific steps to help students learn the necessary skills and develop good work habits so that no child fails.
In addition to a strong academic curriculum, students have the opportunity to participate in a wide variety of extra curricular activites including Science Olympiad, student council, band, choir, FFA, and peer mediation. Team sports include corss country, volleyball, football, wrestling, boys' and girls' basketball, and track and field. Golf and softball are offered in the community during the summer months.
Throughout the school year students participate in physical education classes and a variety of exploratory offerings including agriculture, technology education, computer education, family and consumer education, Spanish, art, and character education.
For more than ten years the school district has partnered with community businesses to bring Junior Achievement into middle school classrooms as part of the social studies economics curriculum. Students have also had the opportunity to learn first hand from foreign exchange teachers through a partnership with the Wisconsin Department of Instruction and the Fulbright International Education Exchange Program. Teachers from Japan, South Korea, Morocco and Norway have spent time living and teaching in the district over the past six years. In addition, the district continues to host foreign exchange students in the high school who share their culture and knowledge with the middle school students.
