At Des Moines Christian School, the junior high teachers are knowledgeable about the developmental needs of the years between elementary and high school. As students mature, they are supported in their growth toward independence and provided engaging, age-appropriate learning experiences.
The junior high years are pivotal to spiritual growth. We are committed to supporting students as they deepen their understanding of who they are in Christ through biblical worldview training and small group studies. As they progress in junior high, they are provided additional opportunities to lead elementary students and assist in the transition of incoming students.
When the Lord is infused into the curriculum and allowed to be part of a student's day, he begins to grow and change in remarkable ways, both academically and spiritually. Students are equipped for life beyond school and are adequately prepared for college and career. And since we've educated the whole person, students are able to go and impact the world for Jesus Christ through both work and ministry.
