Description

East Garner Magnet Middle School (EGMMS) is a part of the world-wide International Baccalaureate Middle Years Program (IBMYP). As an IB school, we incorporate global awareness and community and service into all of our subject area while following the standard course of study. Students in an IB program participate in eight subject areas each year - Language A, Humanities (Social Studies), Math, Science, Healthful Living, Technology, Arts, and Language B. At EGMMS we offer Spanish, French, and Mandarin Chinese. We also offer drama, chorus, strings, orchestra, piano, visual arts, graphic arts, and dance.

We offer tours of our school each day by appointment. Please call 662-2354 to arrange a tour of our amazing school.

Curriculum: International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme

Through the IB program, students develop an understanding and interest in world events and different cultures that will enrich their lives throughout adulthood. Students experience a connectedness throught the Areas of Interaction: Human Ingenuity; Approaches to Learning; Community and Service; Environments; Health and Social Education. Students benefit from a wider range of course offerings in the arts, world languages, technology, social studies, science and even physical education. Teachers ask "Essential Questions" that guide students in finding more than one right answer. During the fifth year of the MYP (Tenth grade), students complete a personal project that demonstrates initiative, organization and creativity.

IB Middle Schools offer grades 6-8 of the Middle Years Programme. Grades 9-10 are offered at our IB High Schools.

Important: Bus routes are subject to change based on actual student distribution, parent appeals, and other factors. The information here will be updated regularly, but updates may take several days to be reflected online. This route information last updated: 2:56 PM, Thu, Apr 3, 2014.

Stop times: Because routes change daily during the first weeks of school, specific stop times are not provided. Parents can anticipate a stop time based on the route start time, estimating 5 minutes between stops in suburban areas, and 5 to 10 minutes between stops in rural areas. The exact stop time will vary during the first weeks of school. Stop times may vary as much as 30 minutes as students settle into their routines. Students should be ready and waiting for the bus at least 10 minutes before the bus is expected to arrive.

Bus schedules: We urge parents to be patient as routes settle during the first few weeks of school. Bus routes may be extended by as much as 30 minutes as students become familiar with a new routine.

Questions?: Contact the Garner Transportation Office.

Academic Highlights

At EGMMS, we believe that it is our responsibility to prepare our students for high school by equipping them with the necessary tools to be successful. Additionally, we think it is critical that our students are able to situate themselves in the world and therefore we imbed global awareness and community and service in all curricular areas. At East Garner Magnet Middle School (EGMMS), we are proud of our program and our accomplishments. For the past several years, our end-of-grade test scores have continued to climb. Our students can take Pre-Algebra, Algebra, and Geometry at EGMMS. We offer three second languages as part of our International Baccalaureate (IB) program: Mandarin Chinese, French, and Spanish. Our students participate in a school wide novel study in the spring of each year. The novels include: The Other side of Truth, The Bread Winner, The Red Scarf Girl, and Crossing the Wire. We offer enrichment activities for all students at all levels of academic success: Novel Scholars, Literary league, and Bookin' It to Lunch for our Level four and AG students; after school tutoring for all levels of math; reading instruction for struggling readers, and a daily team time for all students to receive additional support from their teachers. We offer over seventy nine-week units of study, such as Bad Guys and Bad Girls of History, Global Garden, From Africa to Freedom, Speak to Me, and Race through Latin America. These classes utilize cooperative learning and provide extensions and support for basic skills in math, reading, and writing, while focusing on internationalism, global citizenship, and student interest.

Extra-Curricular Highlights

At East Garner Magnet Middle School, we offer a variety of extracurricular activities for our students. All of our Arts classes participate in quarterly performances plus our yearly musical play that is performed in the spring. We offer a full range of sports including football, volleyball, girls and boys soccer, girls and boys basketball, softball, baseball, cheerleading, and track. We have a variety of after school clubs such as, Spirit club, French club, Mange and Anime, SWAT, Student Ambassadors, Global Classroom, Step Team, Helping Hands, and PAALS. We participate in competitive activities such as Battle of the Books, Science Olympiad, the PAGE Spelling Bee, and WCPSS Reflections. We also offer our students the opportunity to travel internationally. This year we are sponsoring two trips, one to France and one to Spain and Switzerland. We have on-campus book clubs for our student-Novel Scholars, Literary league, Bookin' It to Lunch, and Guys Read.
