History 7/8


  • Through a biblical world view, students are taken around the globe to identify the economic, governmental and societal structures of empires from 300 AD to 1600 AD. They begin with the Fall of the Roman Empire and end with the Renaissance. Along the way, students hear the voice of God as He speaks through missionaries like Columba, St. Patrick, and Cyril.
  • Continuing from the 7th grade, students will dive into American History as they explore the constitutional convention and the history of our nation from the Civil War and Reconstruction. As their history course comes to an end, students will reflect on what is to come, as outlined in the Book of Revelation.




Religion


Let's praise and worship our God. Students participate in Chapel every week as they delve deeper into the studying the word of God. Experience an intimate Bible study as they learn to read, interpret, and make connections to the Bible shaping toward becoming disciples of Jesus Christ.




Technology


Technology is a key resource integrated throughout our core curriculum. With this additional enrichment course, it offers a creative approach to the use of computers through project based learning. Students get hands-on by composing travel guides and brochures and even get a sneak peek of what it is like to be animators as they design their own video games. Journal writing couldn't be more fun as we implement newsletter activities based on student's interest. Our computer program allows us to build on their foundation and to open them to a world of possibilities, tapping into the imaginative side of technology.

A Message from the Principal of

Glenoaks Middle School... 

I want to take a moment to extend my deepest gratitude to the Parents and Students, of our newly established Middle School Division, for entrusting me with their education and time. This year will be full of new experiences and learning opportunities as our students continue their education with Glenoaks Schools. We pray that God bless this endeavor and we can't wait to make this the best school year for everyone involved!
