Welcome to Middle School!
We are a vibrant community of learners of over 180 students and 30 teachers. Our Middle School meets the unique needs of young adolescents and serves as the fundamental bridge between Lower and Upper School. Students at this age are constantly reflecting on their identities as they explore newfound independence and autonomy. At ASP, we help our students navigate these exciting and tumultuous waters by scaffolding their experience in a safe, yet challenging environment. Our teachers stimulate and captivate young people, and preserve what Richard Feynman called “the pleasure of finding things out”.
A Bustling Center of Constant Learning
The Middle School at ASP is a bustling center of constant learning. As you walk through our halls, you will see small groups collaborating on engaging projects and pushing themselves towards self improvement. Whether it be wrestling with a question of social justice in a social studies class, trying to express themselves through art and clay, or pushing their logical thinking in math, our students are engaged. Technology, effectively integrated through our 1:1 program promotes creativity, innovation and connected learning. We balance our academics with a rich abundance of extra-curriculars including offerings in the arts, community service, and athletics. We also give our students a chance to be engaged, global citizens through our Model United Nations program.
Of course, there is so much more to tell you about our Middle School. As you explore the website, we hope you will find it to be a window into our warm, family oriented community—and see yourself here.
