We are looking forward to an excellent year. Below are some key terms for
students and families.
Community Service: As an IB Middle Years Program candidate
school, we hold a high regard for international mindedness and
service. We encourage our students to contribute to the local and
global communities. As part of their Meadow Park experience, we
expect students to volunteer 10 hours and reflect on the experience.
Students will learn more about this in their advisory class.
MYP Criteria: are subject-specific categories, which will be used to
assess the MYP aims and objectives. The Beaverton School District
(BSD) academic learning targets will fit into these criteria.
BSD Academic Learning Targets: The learning targets show what
students will be learning in each content area. They are designed to
build upon student learning from grade level to grade level, and they
are aligned to the Common Core State Standards. The targets are
consistent across all eight of the Beaverton middle schools.
Rubrics: MYP rubrics will be used to measure student achievement on the MYP
Criteria (and the BSD Learning Targets). They will help provide feedback to
students and parents on what can be done to improve their mastery of learning.
Rubrics are an excellent tool for communicating student achievement.
Reporting of grades: As an MYP school, students will be graded with an MYP
rubric. These use a scale of 8 points.
