Critical thinking & communication

As students move from preadolescence to adolescences, our middle school curriculum bridges the gap through the study of core principles for successful thinking and communication.

In addition to standard disciplines, Journey Students explore critical thinking systems, including nonviolent communication, objectivity vs subjectivity, logical fallacies and cognitive biases, the importance of context, meta-cognition and introspection, as well as the Socratic Method. 

US accredited, Journey School’s central tenants continue to be kindness, empathy, compassion and academic excellence. We work closely with Cognia, PBL Works, REGGIO Children and Conscious Discipline.
