The Middle School meets the needs of children from 6th Grade to 8th Grade. Grades 6-8 have elements of the PYP Units of Inquiry program such as the core values, an inquiry approach to learning, the IB student learner profiles and attitudes and the IBO mission statement which drives our curriculum in general from PK-G12. Students in Grades 6 through 8 work with two core teachers for the Humanities (Language Arts and Social Studies) and Math and Science. Global Citizenship, Art, Music, PE, Technology and Spanish are also an important part of the Academia Cotopaxi curriculum. Students in Grades 6-8 also engage in community service projects and exploratory classes.
A few years ago, Cotopaxi adopted the AERO standards. These standards are aligned with the US Common Core standards, yet adapted for schools, like ours, offering American international programs outside of the United States.
