Ida B. Wells Middle School

We are a social justice schoolwide enrichment model (SEM) school committed to providing a well-balanced, rigorous, and loving learning environment for students while also engaging and developing our students as change agents for our community. Our student experience is designed to provide a supportive environment, rooted in recent research on adolescent development. Specifically, we incorporate physical education daily and a SEL (social emotional learning) curriculum focused on helping students develop self-regulation, conflict resolution skills and empathy.
