• 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens

    Middle School West integrates components of Sean Covey’s “7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens” into our school culture and environment.  Students will be exposed to the “habits” throughout the year in their classrooms and specifically during their advisory period.   Students will participate in team building and kinesthetic learning activities which will refine these skills.
