Robbinsdale Area Schools

Welcome to SEA Middle

Serving sixth grade at FAIR School Crystal

All of us at Robbinsdale’s School of Arts and Engineering, or SEA, are excited to offer students the chance to learn in an environment of independent, creative thinkers who WILL make a difference in this world. 

SEA Middle will be located at FAIR School Crystal, offering a sixth grade program for the 2021-2022 academic year. 

As in kindergarten through fifth grade, SEA Middle is built on the foundation of inquiry and hands-on learning. Every day, SEA learning is centered around these three ideas: 

  • What if? The potential to create new thoughts, ideas and products is endless. 

  • It’s okay to fail. Getting something right the first time is not the goal. It is important to keep trying and keep improving. 

  • Integration and collaboration. Silos do not exist where we work, learn or teach. We aim instead for daily integration of science, technology, engineering, arts and math across subject areas and learning experiences.

Every day, the SEA Middle team will provide our sixth graders a stimulating and engaging atmosphere to foster each student’s innate curiosity and joy of discovery. Together, we will achieve high levels of success and develop students ready to contribute as citizens in a diverse and global community.
