At the Downtown Middle School students have the ability to earn “Star Levels” throughout the school year. Students earn a star level by consistently maintaining good behavior, showing leadership, and completing their homework. As students maintain this high standard throughout the year, they can be promoted to higher star levels! Each Star Level the student earns comes with additional incentives and responsibilities. As the students reach higher star levels, they are viewed as leaders in the school and become role models to their peers. Some rewards the students receive for gaining star levels includes ordering lunch from nearby eateries, transitioning between classes independently, and wearing professional clothing two times per week! Additionally each star level comes with a different color lanyard the students proudly wear each day, setting them apart as leaders in the community.
