Middle level educators should be knowledgeable about the nature and needs of the early adolescents and committed to this unique group of students.

Middle level educators demonstrate understanding of curriculum, subject matter content, and pedagogical knowledge through relevant, authentic, and responsive teaching and learning.

Schools for young adolescents provide dynamic curriculum that engages learners and promotes higher order thinking skills through innovative and integrative instructional practices and assessment procedures.

Middle level schools provide developmentally responsive, challenging, engaging, and exploratory curricular and co-curricular programs for all students.

All middle level educators have shared responsibilities in advocating for and supporting all students academically and personally.

Successful middle level programs are the result of effective collaboration among home, school, and community.

Higher education partners collaborate with middle level educators to provide insights on research and best practices, professional development opportunities, and continuing education for pre-service teachers and current practitioners.
