Middle School

Grade 6-8

Students in Middle School are entering the period of adolescence. They are moving from childhood to adulthood. Their bodies are undergoing rapid growth and changes. Recognizing these challenges of adolescence, our curriculum is designed to support and nurture our young adults academically, socially, and emotionally.

The curriculum is focused on developing students’ confidence, competence, abstract thinking ability, and independent decision making. Students will learn in-depth processes of learning (e.g., how to take notes and organize ideas; how to conduct research and prepare for oral presentations; how to write paragraph and answer essay questions; how to study for tests).
Academic subjects and co-curricular and extra-curricular activities provide students with opportunities to challenge themselves, explore their interests and discover their potential. With increased maturity, students have the opportunity to develop leadership skills, to prepare for the greater demand of high school coursework, to look beyond themselves, and to contribute services to others.
