Head of Middle School

Welcome to middle school at Rocky Mount Academy!  The middle school years are a transformative time of immense intellectual, physical, social, and emotional growth.  RMA’s middle school program embraces and celebrates this unique developmental period, providing a smooth transition from the shielded environment of lower school to the academic challenges of upper school. 

During this transition time, students face many new and exciting challenges as well as various opportunities for growth.  Students come to middle school eager to learn, and we purposefully fan that spark into an enduring flame.  Our curriculum balances an appropriate foundation of skills and content with integrated projects and student-initiated learning experiences. 

Students in grades six through eight grow tremendously as they face new challenges inside and outside of the classroom, and I can assure you that the life of each middle school student is being enhanced at RMA.  Because of the guidance of a talented middle school faculty, RMA’s middle school students learn to succeed and thrive while gaining a new level of independence.  Teachers are dedicated to continuous innovation and providing authentic opportunities for creative expression.

The daily goal of RMA's middle school is to prepare students for the challenges, opportunities, and responsibilities that they will encounter in life and college.  If you are interested in seeing what that looks like, I personally invite you to schedule a visit to our school in the near future.  It would be an honor to show you the academic excellence that is seen alive in our classrooms and hallways every day.

Explanation of Grading System

Academic assessment in the Middle School uses percentile averages that are based on the following criteria:

90 – 100    Indicates that a student is excelling in several if not all of the following: skill development, application of skills, sustained and effective use of knowledge, frequent contribution to class discussion, and initiative by going well beyond standard requirements and expectations.

80 – 89      Indicates that a student is excelling in fulfilling requirements and expectations in some areas and displaying competence in many areas.

70 – 79      Indicates that a student is satisfactorily fulfilling the requirements and expectations, sometimes exceeding or falling below them.

65 – 69      Indicates that a student is not satisfactorily fulfilling the requirements and expectations in many areas.

Below 65   Indicates that a student is not fulfilling basic requirements and expectations.

 

Honor Roll and Special Honors

The Honor Roll celebrates the high level of academic achievement earned by our students and serves as encouragement for continuing to strive for academic excellence. All honor roll students receive personal recognition from the school for their success. 

Trimester Awards: At the end of each twelve weeks, the following awards are given: 

Headmaster's List: Students have earned a 90 or above average in each course for the trimester. 

High Honors: An overall grade average of 90 or above, with no individual course average below 70. 

Honors: An overall grade average of 80 or above, with no individual course average below 70. 


Yearly Awards: At the end of the school year, the final honor rolls will be named. 

Straight A Honor Roll: No trimester grade below 90 in any course. This will not include exams. 

A Average Honor Roll: The average of all courses of 90 or above with no individual course average below 70 at year’s end. 

B Average Honor Roll: The average of all courses of 80 or above with no individual course average below 70 at year’s end. 


The Headmaster’s Award: Given at the end of the year in each grade to the student with the highest academic average in all graded courses after proper weighting. Failing a course or an exam for any grading period makes a student ineligible for any yearly honor roll. To be eligible to receive the Headmaster’s or departmental awards, a student must have been enrolled a minimum of half a year at Rocky Mount Academy.
