The Advantages of MY EBUS Middle Years Program
How is Middle Years different than Elementary and Secondary?
Middle school years – grades 7 – 9 and 9 are pivotal years in education and in adolescent development. At EBUS – we know that these learners need strong learning relationships along with increased independence, choice and flexibility. Junior secondary students (grades 7-9) are ready to work with more than one teacher, but not quite ready to work with the eight, or more teachers, as is commonly found in a secondary program. With this in mind, we designed the MY EBUS (Middle Years EBUS) program to ease the transition from elementary school to secondary school, under the guidance of a small team of supportive and dedicated teachers, who are familiar with the needs middle school students and who are committed to student success.
The MY EBUS Program provides:
