Middle school is a time of growth for students, both personally and academically. In the ECOT Middle School, students and their parents appreciate the flexibility of learning from home, working at their own pace and attending live sessions at various hours throughout the day. Clubs, organizations, and social events are all becoming more important to growing students, and ECOT students are encouraged to become active in their school beyond the classroom. In addition:
  • All Middle School teachers meet the Ohio Standards for Highly Qualified Teacher status in the subject areas they teach and are committed to providing quality instructional activities and lessons for students.
  • ECOT provides a team approach to learning, where students receive the attention of two teachers in each Middle School grade level.
To prevent students from falling behind, ECOT intervention specialists will contact parents to help get students back on track. The Middle School course of study is based on the Ohio Academic Content Standards and is designed to promote planning and good study habits that will serve ECOT learners throughout their school years and beyond.
Unlike most traditional classroom settings:
  • ECOT works to identify and meet the personal needs of each student, offering individualized assistance for students through the LIFT program, as well as enrichment activities for advanced students.
A rigorous curriculum to challenge middle schoolers, caring teachers to help them thrive, combined with fun and exciting activities like field trips, science fairs, and social gatherings, all add up to make ECOT the perfect learning environment for students.
