Middle School Services:
As an official Beyond-the-Bell partner of Virgil Middle School, Bresee and its volunteers provide homework help, academic enrichment, and sports workshops for 140 students each day throughout the school year. All students participate in homework help and receive the support of a case manager from the Family Services team. Students also engage in elective workshops, including studio art, theater art, media arts, cooking and nutrition, soccer, and general sports.
English for Success:
Approximately 25% of students in the middle school program are English-language learners who can benefit from additional instruction in in this subject. The English for Success program works with these students to help them understand the reclassification system and empowers them to reclassify as English proficient before high school.
