King Middle School is one of the highest performing middle schools in the state of Maine and serves the most ethnically and economically diverse population in the state. One-third of King’s 550 students are foreign born. Students speak 31 different languages. King has been part of the EL Education network for over 20 years and serves as a mentor school. We will share how King transformed over time and delve into how King has maintained a vibrant culture of continuous improvement. The site seminar will showcase model expeditions that are tied to state and Common Core standards, rich with authentic fieldwork experiences, and have high-quality products. Through the lens of expeditions, participants will gain insight into how we use student-engaged assessment practices, including our implementation of standards-based grading. Participants will have the unique opportunity to learn from a veteran staff and an acclaimed leadership team who have built a positive and highly successful school culture.  

Registration opens August 13, 2018.
