Middle School addresses the needs of early adolescents by appropriately designing their curricular and co-curricular experiences with an interdisciplinary approach, thematic ideas and questions; for the sixth grader it is “Beyond Boundaries” and “Exploring Borders,” for the seventh grader, the question of “Who am I?” is woven into discussions, while in the eighth grade, students examine “Who am I in this world?”
The whole-child emphasis of the middle school program is based on building study and thinking skills, taking responsibility for one’s own education, and developing self-confidence and a sense of moral responsibility. Students are exposed to a wide variety of arts
co-curricular activities as well as assemblies and age-appropriate speakers
throughout the year.
