Welcome - Mr. Horton

WELCOME TO SOUTH EASTERN INTERMEDIATE SCHOOL

Welcome to South Eastern Intermediate School. Our school houses students in grades five and six. Students benefit from a curriculum guided by the Pennsylvania State Standards which is delivered by highly qualified teachers and specialists in a student-focused, learning environment. Our faculty is dedicated to working with students to promote academic rigor in a teaming environment.

Students at SEIS spend most of their day in academic core team of teachers. Core instruction consists of English Language Arts, math, science and social studies. Teachers on the same team share the same students and team planning time allows teachers to work together to exam student data and plan lessons based on this data. Our teachers in both fifth and sixth grade use the Hybrid Learning Module to deliver instruction. This three station teaching model uses direct instruction, collaboration and independent learning to meet inpidual student needs through data driven instruction and differentiation. The use of technology in the independent station of the Hybrid Learning Model supports the direct and collaborative stations by increasing the rigor of instruction while teaching students to work independently. The collaborative station enhances the social learning experience of students through increased rigor of problem solving and application of 21st century learning skills.
In addition to the core subjects, all students have the opportunity to explore the areas of music, art and research. The research curriculum includes content in keyboarding, computer applications and library research. All students receive instruction in physical education and health all year long. Our health curriculum is embedded in the Life Skills Training Program. This researched based curriculum has proven results at the high school level by decreasing high school student involvement in risky behaviors. Our intermediate school also promotes character education by encouraging students and adults to be good people and exhibit a positive attitude. It is important the students at SEIS receive a quality education within a respectful environment.
Our PTO is very active in our school and provides activities and resources for our students. We encourage all parents to get involved and become members of our PTO. The PTO has become a very important component of our school. Please check our calendar for meeting dates.
Your child’s safety is the first concern of our district. As we enter a new calendar year, we will be constantly reviewing our practices and procedures to maintain a safe school environment. The safety and security of our building is a total commitment from everyone.
Do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns. Please stop in and say hello, my door is open.
