Middle level students, who range from ages 10 to 15, experience some of the most significant changes of their lives.
These changes include physical, social, emotional and intellectual. Students are seeking a level of independence and are highly centered on peer interactions.
Successful middle schools recognize these changes and how this affects a student’s thinking and learning. They also recognize that each young adolescent will mature at his or her own rate.
