Middle School

Welcome

Dear Parents,

On behalf of the staff at DelCampo International School, I am happy to welcome you to our Middle School division website! We look forward to developing a partnership with you to ensure our children achieve their highest potential. We recognize that in order to be academically successful, our children need support from both the home and school. We know a strong relationship with you will make a great difference in your child’s education. As partners, we share the responsibility for our students' accomplishments and want you to know that we will do our very best to carry out our responsibilities.

The beginning of each school year is a time filled with great anticipation of what is to come. We are excited to announce that our Middle School students  will be making use of technology through iPads, which will enable them to utilize broader resources that are needed for success in the classroom.

Student academic success is the main goal of every staff member at DCIS. We believe every student will learn to the highest level and we are prepared to offer the time and support that every student needs. Our staff is comprised of highly qualified educators who are committed to providing students with the support they’ll need to develop into life long learners.

We are committed to foster a teaching and learning community where instruction is student-centered, project based and connected to real world experiences. Our curriculum is designed to prepare students by developing the skills needed to be successful.  At DCIS we believe in Being Prepared, Being Respectful, Being an Example, and Having Pride of our Green and Gold.

Our goal is to provide students with an educational experience that is Standard-based, Measurable, Relevant, and immersed in technology. This is driven by the belief that all students can learn, that relationships are central to success and that all students have gifts to contribute to the community.

I look forward to working with each of you this school year. Let’s make it the best one ever!

Kind Regards,

Mrs. Linda Cruz- Jalil
Middle School Principal


Who we are

Middle School at DelCampo was founded with the purpose of establishing a transition for our pre-teen students.  The focus in our Middle School is to take our students from their childhood to the introduction of social skills and pre developing knowledge and techniques that will be fully developed during the High School years.

The Middle School program of study offers an active learning approach where students are actively engaged in the classroom to develop high order thinking skills and to effectively develop skills such as writing, speaking and listening.  


Middle School Teacher

 
I love being an English teacher, because it allows me to share my love of learning and especially reading with my students. My ultimate goal as a teacher is to get my students to be as passionate about reading as I am. Of course this is hard in the 21st century where technology reigns, but that is why DelCampo is an ideal place to work. Here students have the luxury of using iPads to learn, meaning they literally have millions of books just at the tap of the iPad. All in all I am lucky to be part of the DelCampo family, spreading my love of reading to all those middle schoolers who cross my path.
