MIDDLE SCHOOL
GRADES 6-8
 

 

A CENTER OF CONSTANT LEARNING


Middle School students are challenged, stimulated, and inspired to stretch beyond their comfort zone and expand their learning by:

  • Kindling the innate curiosity of early adolescents by advancing an inquiry-based curriculum approach that is challenging, integrated, and connected to the real world
  • Developing self-confidence, resilience, and a growth mindset, where ability and talent are developed through effort and persistence
  • Creating a strong sense of belonging where close and trusting relationships between students and teachers promote the unique development of each student’s personal identity

Our Middle School philosophy of education focuses on a holistic view of learning, where our students develop themselves as artistic, intellectual, physical, and social individuals. Our curriculum takes an interdisciplinary perspective, emphasizing the relationship between the subjects at each grade level. With a diverse student population, we encourage an intercultural awareness that leads students to value people’s differences. With an emphasis on the mastery of lifelong learning skills, such as research and communication skills, rather than on mastery of a pre-ordained body of knowledge, our students are prepared for life beyond the Middle School. In addition to meeting demanding standards established by state and professional organizations in the United States, our curriculum integrates information technology skills into all areas of learning, and prepares students for the option of the International Baccalaureate Diploma program.

DEVELOPMENT IN THE MIDDLE YEARS


Learning in the middle years extends far beyond the classroom. In addition to developing the core skills for academic success, Middle School students focus on becoming well-rounded global citizens. With opportunities for personal growth through service and experiential learning, and community-building and support through Advisory, our students become competent, creative, and compassionate individuals.
