The middle school years mark a significant formational time in students’ lives. To support their development, MEI Middle provides a variety of exploratory and elective courses to provide a variety of opportunities for students to explore and experience new activities both in and outside of the classroom, allowing students to discover areas of interest and aptitude, and develop valuable life skills. In addition to the prescribed academic curriculum in British Columbia and a wealth of opportunities in the areas of music, drama, home economics, and industrial education, all students have the opportunity to explore technology through Info-Tech and Tech-Ed. Every Grade 7 and 8 student will move through a Leadership/Service Exploratory.
