Rigorous academics coupled with enrichment programs foster the development of well-rounded students at Brook Haven Middle School. Fifth graders learn in self-contained classrooms with highly qualified teachers. Beyond core academics, fifth graders participate in physical education, STEM enrichment, and either band or choir. The sixth-grade curriculum is structured in core blocks with English language arts/history and math/science teachers. Sixth graders also participate in physical education and can choose between electives such as band, STEM enrichment and woodshop. Seventh and eighth- grade students participate in a standard six period, departmentalized middle school program with subject-specific instructors. Seventh and Eighth-grade students can choose from various enrichment offerings, including band, choir, video production, woodshop, art, leadership, and helping in a classroom as a cross-grade tutor and teacher’s assistant.
Extracurricular & Athletics
Brook Haven students are provided opportunities to participate in various extracurricular activities. As a member of the West County Athletic League, students can join after school athletics teams (basketball, flag football, volleyball & cross-country). Additionally, Brook Haven offers many clubs and activities for students, including Student Leadership, Rotary-Interact, Garden, Yearbook, Bike and Book Clubs.
The TOOLBOX Project is a social-emotional curriculum adopted by Sebastopol Union School District. The TOOLBOX program provides tools for solving problems in the classroom and in social settings. With modifications to provide age- appropriate social-emotional learning skills, TOOLBOX is used at the middle school level in conjunction with restorative practices to better handle conflicts and potential disciplinary issues.
Students are supported through Advisory twice a week which allows students the opportunity to participate in academic intervention or extension, based on their personal needs or strengths. Students also have the opportunity for before school and lunchtime academic support and after-school homework help in the Boys & Girls Club. The use of classroom aides allows opportunities for small group instruction and differentiation. Brook Haven prides itself on supporting the whole child in a diverse and welcoming environment.
The Warrior Way
Being a Warrior comes with big responsibilities.
At Brook Haven Middle School all of our students are expected to be:
As a school we utilize PBIS to encourage our expectations. PBIS stands for Positive Behavior Intervention Supports. Our core belief is to teach students about Respect, Responsibility and Safety as a way to learn about appropriate pro-social behaviors.
Throughout the school day students can earn Red Tickets for demonstrating positive behavior. At lunch, they have the opportunity to shop at the Warrior Walkup, our student store with snacks and school spirit gear. Tickets also can be saved for things like lunches with teachers, or even the chance to throw a pie at a teacher during a lunch assembly!
