Vision Statement
Stonewall Middle School is a center of learning where the whole school community collaboratively provides an inspiring, creative, and rigorous International Baccalaureate curriculum. This is accomplished in a safe environment that promotes student-centered learning, positive and respectful social interactions, and global awareness. . . one child at a time.
  
Stonewall Middle School is currently a Google Apps for Education (GAFE) School.  To assist in satisfying the technology requirements of the IBMYP Programme, our students will be using various aspects of Google programs (including but not limited to: Google Classroom, Google Docs, and GMail).  Access to our school's Google Domain allows students to complete assignments online, work with and in a real-time 21st-century technology-based collaborative environment, communicate with their teachers during and beyond class time, and provides an avenue to learn real-world skills along with cyber-citizenship.  Our Google domain is configured according to PWCS recommended standards and is monitored for inappropriate content.

The free program is open to students in grades 3-12. Downloaded software can be used by family members too. It includes free automatic updates, and is good for as long as students remain in Prince William County Public Schools. Access to Microsoft's OneDrive makes it easy to synch data between personal computers.

IB Grading at Stonewall Middle School
Stonewall has changed its grading system to align with the requirements of the IB program. Grades will be taken on a daily basis. Grades will reflect student's level of understanding and mastery of skills presented in class. Throughout a unit of study teachers will be giving a variety of Formative Assessments that allow students to practice skills and show understanding of content. These Formative Assessments can be quizzes, homework assignments, worksheets, group work, exit slips, labs, vocabulary, or bell work. These types of Formative Assessments will account for 20% of the students overall unit grade. The remaining 80% of a student's unit grade will come from their Summative Assessment. The Summative Assessment is an end of the unit assessment that allows students to show their knowledge and skills gained throughout the unit of study. These Summative Assessments can be projects, unit tests, essays, project analysis. The Summative Assessments will also be graded against an IB rubric that ranges from 1-8. To see the specific Objectives for each subject and other information about the grading change please see the documents section on Mr. Beard’s school fusion page – located under International Baccalaureate tab on the school's webpage.
