Growth Mindset


Fixed Mindset
The belief that skills, intellect, and talents are set and unchangeable.



Growth Mindset
The belief that skills, intellect, and talents can be developed through practice and perseverance. 


I'll stick to what I know. Either I'm good at it or not. Desires I want to learn new things. I am eager to take risks.
It's fine the way it is. There is nothing to change. Skills Is this really my best work? What else can I improve?
This is a waste of time; there's a lot to figure out. Effort I know this will help me even though it is difficult.
It's easier to give up. I'm not really smart. Setbacks I'll use another strategy; my mistakes help me learn.
This work is boring. No one likes to do it. Feedback I recognize my weakness, and I know how to fix it.
It's easy for him or her. They were born smart. Talented Peers I wonder how they did it. Let me try to figure it out.

Stanford News


The Long Beach Unified School District does not tolerate harassment, including acts of harassment based on race, color, or national origin. Any student or parent who believes he or she has been subjected to harassment is encouraged to report the incidents to Stanford Middle School administrators, Dr. Costa and/or Ms. Reyes. The District is committed to conducting a prompt, adequate, and reliable investigation and providing an effective response to stop the harassment, prevent its recurrence and address its effects.


Every effort will be made to resolve the concerns of students and their parents/guardians at Stanford at the earliest possible stage. Concerns not resolved can be addressed to the Middle School Office, Attention: Assistant Superintendent. If the concern continues to need resolution, it can be addressed to the District, Attention: Director of Human Resources through the Uniform Complaint Process (Please see attachment: UCP Annual Notice). Corrective actions may include counseling, training or discipline of a student or employee as appropriate.


Retaliation against those reporting harassment is prohibited and allegations that students and/or employees have retaliated against individuals who report harassment will be promptly investigated and addressed.


Do you like to build?  Would you like to see your imagination at work creating something?  Can you work well with others?


If you answered yes to all 3 of these questions, you are able to come MONDAYS after school (until 4:30) for the next 8-12 weeks and you are a current 6th or 7th grader then please consider applying for the robotics club.


Attendance is a major part of this club, so the expectation that you'll commit to coming after school is imperative.  Without your attendance, completion of robotics projects become difficult to finish.


Download the application below, or come see Mr. Feely after school in room 912 for a copy.  All applications must be turned into me by Tuesday, January 23rd. - NO EXCEPTIONS!!!


If you'd like to see the club in action, swing by Tuesdays and Thursdays after school in room 912 and see how the club works.



Teachers in the English Language Arts department will be holding office hours on designated days and at certain times to help any students with ELA questions and work. Students may still work with their own teacher to arrange for a time to get help, but we wanted to make sure that students could come to us if they need general support (working on an essay, answering questions about reading, etc...). Please e-mail your particular ELA teachers with specific or particular questions about assignments. This is a general help and tutoring opportunity of which we hope you will take advantage.
