Welcome To Zane Middle School

In the fall of 2013, Zane transitioned into a 6th - 8th grade Magnet School with STEAM being the focus for the future. Zane’s rigorous academic program is being delivered through the focus of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) preparing students with 21st Century Skills needed in today’s workforce. Zane teachers collaborate with each other regularly to provide a connected curriculum in a nurturing environment.

Zane students have access to a full elective and exploration program that is enhanced by the STEAM model and the integrated curriculum approach. Elective opportunities include: video production classes working with Access Humboldt, an award winning music program that includes a beginning band and strings as well as a choir and a renowned Jazz Band that performs at the Jazz Festival, an Advanced Placement academy that is preparing students for the rigors of High School AP classes, an art program that presents at Arts Alive, student leadership classes, high school level Spanish I and much more.

Zane is forming partnerships with the community that will enhance our students’ education.  Recently, Zane formalized a partnership with Humboldt State University (HSU) around STEM principles.  HSU is also focusing on Science, Technology, Engineering and Math to ensure their graduates are skill-ready to take on the jobs of today.  The HSU President and his Cabinet members met with the Zane Leadership Team and identified meaningful ways to enhance the education experience for our students and staff as well as the students and faculty at HSU.

Zane’s educational program spans the entire day; from the opportunity to enroll in zero period classes to a full afterschool program and athletic opportunities at all levels.

The bottom line is that Zane strives to serve the educational needs and build upon the interests of all students.
