First-Place Award-Winning Middle School
The last step is our locally and nationally recognized private middle school, which continues helping students master the skills needed to excel in high school and take their place in today’s increasingly competitive world. Fifth through eighth graders participate in a fully departmentalized, academically rigorous curriculum with dynamic, specialized master level instructors in each subject. More emphasis is placed on individual responsibility for academic work. Assignments are given further in advance. Projects become larger. And subjects are integrated across disciplines.
Unlike large intermediate schools which may be overwhelming, the transition to these grades is easy at Seashore, because we work closely with each student, monitor individual progress and coordinate the timing of tests, projects and homework to keep the course load manageable.
An Advanced, Award-Winning Education Takes Students Places
The diversified curriculum that exceeds National Common Core Standards, includes the classics and contemporary literature, Pre Algebra, Algebra 1, geometry, chemistry, biology, astronomy, physics, social studies, Spanish, technology, art, music, physical education and swimming. To give students a real-life understanding of what is taught in the classroom, there are trips to Columbia University, National Geographic Encounter: Ocean Odyssey, Science Olympiad, the State House, Jennifer Chalsty Planetarium, Liberty Science Center, 9/11 Memorial Museum, Metropolitan Museum Of Art, Museum of Modern Art, Leadership Conference at Brookdale Community College, Broadway shows, New Jersey Shakespeare Company Productions, fossil hunting at Poricy Park, Clean Ocean Action Student Summit, Great Adventure Physics Day and more.
Aspiring Journalists Can Write For Seashore Student Views,
2018 Gold Medalist and Gold Circle Winner And Recipient of 2016 and 2017 Crowns From Columbia University
Students are taught to write and design Seashore Student Views, the only intermediate school newspaper in NJ and one of three in the USA to win 2016 and 2017 Crowns from Columbia University’s Scholastic Press Association. Critiqued against journalists through 12th grade, the publication also earned 2018 Gold Medalist Status, All-Columbian Honors and a Gold Circle, scoring 929 out of a possible 1,000 points from judges at the Ivy League’s Graduate School of Journalism. This was the 14th win for Seashore Student Views. To continue improving skills, each November, participants join delegates from schools across the Northeast at Columbia’s historic Morningside Heights Campus, for a full day of workshops on all aspects of student publishing with top journalists and educators throughout the country.
Essay Class Prepares Students To Win Asbury Park Press Student Voices Contest
Starting in seventh grade, students also participate in an essay writing class, where they take a stand on issues that affect their age group in the monthly Asbury Park Press Student Voices Contest. We ware proud that one of our seventh graders won first place in the November 2018 Contest, which asked boys and girls what they thought about legalizing marijuana in New Jersey. Another took second in the March 2019 Contest, which asked if President Trump has been good or bad for America. This student also went on to receive an Honorable Mention in the May Competition. Catching the attention of judges over hundreds of submissions, these Seashore students were published in the newspaper, won gift certificates and will be honored at an awards ceremony June 4 with other winners of the monthly competition.
BEE Ready Class
To prepare students for the Scripps Regional Bee, children take a BEE Ready Class as a supplement to their Language Arts Curriculum. In addition to mastering first to eighth grade lists, they learn spelling tips for words from Italian, Greek, Latin, German, Dutch, Japanese, Spanish, French, Arabic, Asian and Greek origin. They match words with definition and are treated to authentic food from that week’s country. Whether boys and girls move on to the Regionals at Monmouth University for a spot at the Nationals or not, all participants expand their vocabulary, improve their spelling and boost confidence.
Students learn Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math (STEAM) Skills needed to compete in Science Olympiad. Executing tasks with precision while the clock is running, children are taught to stay cool under pressure. On February 23, 2019, boys and girls not only took first in the Mini Marshmallow Tower Event and Aerodynamics. They brought home a total of 12 medals in five categories — the Seashore Science Olympiad record.
