At the junior high level, students face new challenges and need a specific kind of support for their educational progress. Grapevine Faith’s experienced junior high faculty recognizes these hurdles, and knows how to motivate students to see them as opportunities for academic and leadership development. Junior high teachers see their role as more than providing excellent classroom instruction, looking for ways to connect with students at lunch, in the hall, and at school events. They have a genuine desire to know their students, and to help them see that God loves them and has uniquely created them for a purpose. By the time a student leaves junior high, he/she has been prepared spiritually, physically, emotionally, and socially for the transition to high school.
