The Middle School experience is defined by a harmonious balance of guidance and exploration. Our students receive tailored instruction that channels their curiosity into unfamiliar curricular terrain and helps them make informed choices about their own educational pursuits.
Surrounded by adults who understand and value this crucial developmental stage, our students enter meaningful conversations with teachers, coaches, deans and administrators. Our faculty members are mentors who create an environment for students to work collaboratively while fostering strong relationships.
Challenges and Choices
The Middle School is characterized by exposure to new ideas and the freedom to explore developing interests. Self-advocacy and self-expression flourish as over 80 Options classes and rotations in P.E. and the arts introduce new subject matter and inspire students to make educated decisions about their academic and extracurricular pursuits.
Our students joyfully tackle new material while sharpening their critical thinking and problem-solving skills. As they begin appreciating uncertainty, they also start seeking out intellectual complexities on their own by asking thoughtful questions and making connections across disciplines.
