Kraxberger Middle School serves approximately 500 students in grades 6 to 8. Our school offers students the chance to explore new interests, while increasing their independence and preparing for the rigors of high school.
Our staff understands the uniqueness of middle school students as they develop greater responsibility for their own learning. We work to provide an engaging, challenging classroom experience while meeting each student’s individual needs.
In addition to the core subjects of math, language arts, science and social studies, our students explore a variety of subjects in the elective wheel. This class period includes six-week sessions on physical education, art, technology, economics, music, Spanish and writing.
Every student has a daily Power Time class, which reinforces study skills, academic skills, and life skills. All students spend critical time reading during this period. There are also opportunities during Power Time for students to participate in band.
Students in sixth grade have the special opportunity to attend Outdoor School, a week-long experience in environmental science and team building that takes place on the beautiful Oregon coast!
Of course, the learning doesn’t end when the last bell rings! We have a wealth of afterschool activities that give students the chance to explore their interests while interacting with a mission-focused, mentor-led group.
Options include choir, KAOS (which supports learning and enrichment), and our new robotics club. We also offer a very successful volleyball and basketball intramural sports program, as well as an inter-district track program in the spring.
Thank you for all you do to support our students at home and in school. We welcome all opportunities to partner with our families!
