The strength of the VECC lies in its richly diverse, multi-cultural student population. Students in the middle school may speak one of twenty-one different languages or come from one of over fifty countries. The students bring enriching life experiences to our classrooms. In the 2012-2013 school year, approximately four hundred middle school students attended Ventnor Middle School.
Ventnor Middle School provides a full range of educational services appropriate to grades five through eight. Academic courses include the five core subjects consisting of reading, English, mathematics, social studies, and science. Related arts programs open to all students include art, music, computers, technology, instrumental music, health, physical education, and world language. Other programs include English as a Second Language, Algebra, Title One, and Special Education.
The middle school offers a wide range of extracurricular activities including interscholastic sports in soccer, field hockey, basketball, volleyball, and track and field. Additional extracurricular activities include Honor Society and Student Council. Our academic afterschool programs include computer aided instruction, study halls, and mathematics / language tutoring.
The VECC emphasizes the use of technology in teaching and learning. The Media Center is equipped with networked computers and other “state of the art” technology. Wireless laptops and netbooks are being used in all grade levels.
At the Ventnor Middle School, it is our goal to facilitate a positive environment for learning and growing, where students believe they can achieve in academics and foster their own innate talents through all endeavors.
