Middle School: I desire to know others
The Middle School (Grades 6-8) builds upon the foundation established in the Lower School by continuing to promote the academic, social, and emotional development of its students. Students move from a single-teacher classroom structure to a multi-classroom, multi-teacher model.
As students grow into early adolescence, they learn skills to progress from concrete to analytical thinkers. Teachers encourage students to think abstractly and develop excellent communication skills with hands-on projects, open-ended questions, and challenging problems. Students learn to think mathematically and scientifically. Our Middle Schoolers become adept in world languages, develop strategies for physical and emotional health, work collaboratively with peers, and express themselves through the arts. Students leave eighth grade confident and well versed in various subject areas and habits of mind, prepared to meet the challenges of the strong academic program at the Upper School.
