Vision

Through a challenging, international education program, J.H. Workman students will become active, compassionate, and lifelong learners who understand other people and their differences.

Our Philosophy

Emerging adolescents have special characteristics and needs that identify them as a unique group. J. H. Workman Middle School will provide a holistic approach to education in a safe and stimulating environment that meets the needs of our diverse population.  Through higher-level thinking and questioning, through hands-on classroom instruction, through services offered by our guidance department, through extra-curricular clubs and activities, and through leadership opportunities appropriate for this age, our learners are encouraged to be responsible, independent, and self-directed.  Workman Middle School has an articulate and effective program to facilitate a smooth transition from elementary to high school while providing many opportunities to develop our students’ potential.

          Each student will be encouraged to recognize his or her capacity for achievement, to develop a positive self-concept, to grow in self-discipline and social consciousness while attaining cultural understanding and respect for diversity. Beyond providing academic, social, and living skills, the holistic curriculum of Workman Middle School will seek to develop an appreciation of the ongoing quality of all learning experiences. We hope the implementation of this framework of curriculum and sound philosophy will challenge our students to reach their greatest potential becoming productive, creative, responsible members of society in an ever-changing world.
