Team Pages Overview
At Hillsborough Middle School, student life centers around interdisciplinary teams of teachers for literacy, math, science and social studies. A special education teacher serves each team as a learning specialist supporting students in and out of class.
The team structure is central to a middle school design. It brings together the best of both worlds - content specialty and expertise with a common planning time for better communication among the team teachers. This arrangement serves to create a learning environment that is most responsive to the needs of students as they enter the adolescent years.
