In the middle grades, we introduce courses in technology, business math, physics, modern history, and strings ensemble or flute. Students gain experience in giving oral presentations, debate, observation, and drawing conclusions. Inquiry and reasoning skills and moral, social and emotional capacities are cultivated across the disciplines.
Our comprehensive curriculum is carefully considered to inspire learning and understanding in preparation, both intellectually and emotionally, for the challenges of high school, post-secondary school and life. We encourage personal initiative, social awareness, and critical thinking.
The middle school years culminate with a year-long study and an oral and artistic presentation. In grade 8, students begin a gradual transition to high school through immersive experiences, including a week-long campus visit, inclusion in Friday elective classes, and participation in high school trips.
The developing adolescent values human connections, desires a strong moral compass and craves challenging academics. We strive to support our middle-grade students in their unfolding emotional lives by nurturing their emerging sense of self.
