Stuart-Hobson Middle School

School Notes - October 2014

Stuart-Hobson is taking a new approach to math instruction this year: Teachers are using a “blended learning” model, a combination of traditional teacher-led instruction and an adaptive computer program that targets each student’s individual learning needs. Recent research shows that this model has been highly successful at increasing achievement in schools. 

The new school year also has brought a new musical group to the school: the school’s very first orchestra. Last month, those student musicians joined hundreds of other Washingtonians at Union Station for a performance by world-famous violist Joshua Bell. 

The school is hosting two high-school fairs to help students find the best high school for them. The first is with admissions representatives of private and parochial schools: 6 p.m. Oct. 23. Representatives of DCPS high schools will be at the school 6 p.m. Nov. 13. Stuart-Hobson, 410 E St. N.E., 202-671-6010 -- Capitol Hill Cluster School PTA Communications Team
