Blacksburg Middle School Academics
Active Learning and Individualized Instruction

Students are not passive learners – they learn by participating and by doing. That is why science is based on experiments, math and technology are based on application, art and music are based on production, and  English and social studies include writing and discussion that involves higher levels of thinking.  Success isn't just about manipulating numbers or doing grammar exercises, it's about being able to apply concepts to real life situations.
