Exemplary Programs
Our goal is to provide young people with a world-class education, one that challenges students’ ability to solve problems, think critically, communicate effectively, and act locally to make a positive contribution in their school and community. Our staff is highly qualified and developmentally responsive to the age group we serve. We share parents’ high expectations and work closely with families to maximize the success of every child. We maintain a six-period day that includes mathematics, language arts, social studies, and science for all students. Related arts classes offer the option of Project Lead The Way (STEM), chorus/band/strings, art, foreign language, health/ physical education, agricultural science, and business education. The effective use of technology is woven into all our classes. Classroom teachers utilize Smart Boards, I-pads, mobile and stationary computer labs, and distance learning to enrich instruction.

Curriculum Highlights
The driving force behind all of our instruction is the Common Core State Standards. With that, we implement Learning Focused Strategies as a staple for instructional design at Alfred G. Waters Middle. The staff at AGW has embraced LFS and developed units of study centered on the strategies developed from Learning-Focused.

This year, AGW Staff will be revamping our units of study to incorporate a more student centered approach to teaching and learning. Teachers from all core academic areas have developed common units of study with activities and assessments to prepare our students. Students at AGW will be exposed to formative and summative assignments and assessments that will enable them to demonstrate mastery of the standard. All staff have also been trained to create lessons high in student collaboration and engagement.
