Long Beach Middle School is sixth through eighth grade setting in which we promote the social, emotional and intellectual growth of our students. Our focus is to provide a school setting that is responsive to their educational and developmental needs. We offer a rich array of extra-curricular activities. Check our calendar, club and athletics pages for details.
Our school has an interdisciplinary approach. Teaming is the hallmark of middle level education. The teams are comprised of four core subject area teachers (English, Science, Social Studies, and Math.) These four teachers share a common group of students. Each group of teachers has a common planning time to meet every day to discuss students, curriculum, assessment and projects. They have time set aside in the schedule for conferencing with guidance counselors and meeting with parents.

 Long Beach Sixth Graders Experiment Will Get Launched into Space

Long Beach Public School District is excited to announce an experiment designed by five of its sixth-grade students has been selected as the official flight experiment to be launched into space as part of the National Center for Earth and Space Science Education’s Student Spaceflight Experiments Program (SSEP). Out of 58 proposals written, 41 were submitted to the Step 1 Local Review Board, who chose the top 3 to be adjudicated by the Step 2 National Review Board.

The winning recognition goes to the proposal: “How does Microgravity Affect the Germination of Oyster Mushroom Spawns (Pleurotus ostreatus),” submitted by Frank Depace, Jr., Nathaniel Kaplan, Jackson Spitz, Gregory Seifert, Giuliana Urrego, and their teacher, Regina Dean.

Long Beach Public Schools Director of Science Cristie Tursi said, while Frank, Nathaniel, Gregory, Jackson, and Giuliana showed true dedication, curiosity, and insight, all 6th grade students, teachers, co-teachers, and staff deserve major kudos and accolades for herculean efforts and collaborative contributions! I am very proud of the entire community who volunteered their time and talents to help us with this first phase! Tursi went on to share, “We all are looking forward to learn how the microgravity affects the germination of Oyster Mushroom Spawns and compare the results with the ground experiment performed by all our sixth-grade students.”

The opportunity to submit a proposal was offered to the entire sixth grade at Long Beach Middle School. In addition to the winning group, two other sixth grade teams were among the finalists submitted to the Step 2 National Review Board. Those projects were: “How Does Microgravity Affect Biodegradable Plastics,” and “How does Microgravity Affect the Germination of Baby Lima Bean Seeds?”

Throughout the rest of the year, the SSEP selected team will set up the space experiment to be performed by astronauts, and their classmates will work in teams to perform the control experiment. “This is real science as a verb: engaging, authentic, project-based learning that inspires students to dream big!” Tursi said.

In June 2023, mission patches will be launched to the International Space Station (ISS) along with the science experiment designed by the 6th grade students, and the patches will return to Long Beach with embossed certificates. Onboard the ISS, the patches and experiment will fly at an altitude of 260 miles above Earth’s surface. This is 47 times higher than Mt. Everest and will travel 400,000 miles each day!

In the next phase of the project, Ms. Tursi and the Science Department will collaborate with the Long Beach Director of the Arts and the K-12 Art Departments on the Mission Patch Art and Design Contest. Long Beach Public Schools will be holding two contests: one for students in Grades K-5 and one for students in Grades 6-12.

The Student Spaceflight Experiments Program is a program of the National Center for Earth and Space Science Education (NCESSE) in the U.S. and the Arthur C. Clarke Institute for Space Education Internationally. It is enabled through a strategic partnership with Nanoracks, LLC, which is working with NASA under a Space Act Agreement as part of the utilization of the International Space Station as a National Laboratory.

Ancient Egypt Comes to Long Beach Middle School

Sixth grade students at Long Beach Middle School traveled back in time to explore Ancient Egypt. On Dec. 21, they displayed an assortment of projects as the culmination of their social studies unit on early river valley civilizations with an “Egypt Exhibit” in the school’s library.

Students developed informative and visual works that portrayed aspects of Ancient Egypt while also incorporating other subject areas. They wrote books about famous historical figures that demonstrated their knowledge of the subject matter and wrote poetry about life on the Nile River. They constructed three-dimensional models of the pyramids, afterlife artifacts, canopic jars, sarcophagus, and more. Proudly, they displayed their knowledge of papyrus, hieroglyphics, the mummification process, gods and goddesses, jewelry and sports representative of Ancient Egypt.  

Sixth-grade classes had the opportunity to tour the exhibit and view their peers’ work and read the written summaries that accompanied each project on display.
