Paxon Hollow Middle School Structure

Paxon Hollow Middle School includes 6th, 7th, and 8th grades and operates using a team model.  The team model consists of a group of teachers that work with students. Each team includes a math, English/Language Arts, science, history, special education, and gifted support teacher.  In addition, each grade has one counselor who remains with the grade level for the entire three years of middle school. 


This model offers students an interdisciplinary approach to promote academic, social, and emotional success. In addition, this teaming model offers students and parents a concentrated communication forum during the transitioning years from elementary to secondary school. 


There are two teams for each grade, which are titled after a letter in the Greek letter alphabet.  The 6th grade teams are named Alpha and Beta.  Each year, students are randomly assigned to one of the two teams.
