Sonoji Sakai Intermediate School is on two levels, with five to six classrooms in each of four clusters. At the school’s center, the library is the focal area for student learning. Classes fully utilize a computer lab. A large gym accommodates physical education classes, intramural and school lunch programs, and community groups. Environmentally sensitive considerations preserve a watershed and salmon stream that have been
incorporated into the curriculum and with other efforts demonstrate our focus on environmental stewardship.
Sakai Intermediate School is committed to creating a caring, collaborative learning community, dedicated to preparing involved and capable members of a diverse society.
• Sakai is positive, nurturing, welcoming, and engaging for staff, students and parents.
• Learning is a process that challenges students to think and perform independently and responsibly.
• Sakai educators set high expectations for themselves and their students and believe that all students can be successful.
• Fifth and sixth grade students are in a unique transition, and their learning should facilitate that change.
