Academic Resources for Middle School

Our teachers have compiled the resources below by level as well as by subject area to provide you with specific academic resources while school is closed.

Before you begin exploring these activities, you should start by reading a book for 30 minutes each day. Yale researchers found that reading 30 minutes a day not only helps your brain, but you may live longer as well.

In addition to these specific areas and resources, you can also find additional enrichment opportunities here:

  • ClassLink – a single sign-on database that gives students access to an array of educational apps specific to their educational level. You will find more information on using ClassLink here:
