The Successful Middle School

Online Course Series

The Successful Middle School: This We Believe, AMLE’s landmark position paper now in its fifth edition, provides a foundational, research-supported overview of best practice in the middle grades. Successful middle schools exhibit 18 characteristics to support an education for young adolescents that is responsive, challenging, empowering, equitable, and engaging.

The Successful Middle School Course Series explores each of these essential attributes and characteristics in a self-paced, virtual format with exercises and reflections throughout to help learners understand how to realize and embed these principals in their daily practice. Complete these individually, or together as a team, based on your learning preference.

Upon finishing the series, complete the final post-assessment to claim a contact hours certificate documenting 4.0 hours of learning.
