The One91 Middle School Experience


Built on deep, nuanced learning.

With rigorous curriculum to challenge all learners and varied assessments to appropriately measure progress, our middle school experience has been designed to prepare students for future success.


Building skills and self-confidence.

We know that investing in tomorrow’s leaders means giving them opportunities to grow and learn today. Through programs like Where Everybody Belongs (WEB), older students act as mentors for incoming sixth-grade students and help ease the transition from elementary school life.


Student-centered environments.

We keep our schools safe and inclusive by choosing students over scores, time and again. At the middle school level, we’ve made renewed efforts to engage families, make guidance and support services accessible, and emphasize health and wellness in our curriculum.

The model - which we’re calling Pathways K-12 - builds on the work we are already doing in elementary schools. It also aligns with the Pathways model at Burnsville High School that helps students find their passions, understand how classes and careers fit together, and prepare for success after graduation.
