TKS Middle School - Opening 2020 - 2021
Our enriching and thriving PK-6th grade program is growing! The Kessler School is excited to announce the addition of 7th and 8th grades, launching in 2020-2021.
The Kessler Middle School, to include 6th-8th grade, will continue to offer a student-centered, project-based experience that is academically rigorous.
TKMS will follow the Teacher’s College Workshop Model for Humanities and use STEM thought processes for cross-curricular connections. Daily electives and advisory will create a well-rounded school day to meet the needs of all learners. Leadership requirements will be built in the schedule, with additional club options available to all.
What makes TKMS a unique middle school experience is the expertise behind the curriculum and leadership. TKMS has partnered with community experts to offer classes led by seasoned professionals within their particular field.
STEM instruction will be led by the team at Mad Science; Visual Arts led by local artists from Oil and Cotton, and a Performing Arts partnership with Oak Cliff Dance.
Off campus experiences and community Intern-trips (field trips) will be an integral part of the middle school experience at The Kessler School, allowing students make authentic, real-world connections to curriculum while learning to value local community resources.
