VBMS SIXTH GRADE
The MIDDLE SCHOOL CONCEPT aims at developing the
whole child through core teams, exploratory and
elective classes, clubs, and activities.
The TEAM CONCEPT gives students and teachers the
feeling of belonging to a group with common
goals. To promote this, each student is assigned
to a core team. Currently there are two core
teams at VBMS the Red Foxes and the Tree Frogs.
