Middle School

Middle school is a unique and exciting time of change. Understanding this is critical to helping our students learn about themselves as people and as students. 

 

We know that no two students learn in the same way, so we individualize our program to help each student find success.  In the classroom, teachers utilize creative approaches so that students not only learn conceptually, but they also learn how to learn effectively. Through our small class sizes, engaging teacher/student relationships, and genuine concern for each student, we emphasize social/emotional growth through personal relationships, academic excellence through critical thinking, and commitment to community through leadership and extra-curricular opportunities.

 

Classes are taught using different teaching techniques such as small-group discussions; lecturing/note-taking; or assigning and supervising collaborative, hands-on, independent study projects, all of which give students a well-rounded foundation upon which they can build successful futures.

 

The Middle School has a 1:1 laptop program, which allows classes to integrate the use of technology for activities such as note taking, study skills, organization, presentations, and much more.

 

We see Middle School as a great time of discovery. Our students are guided and supported to learn who they are and how they learn best. A healthy mix of academic challenges and personal growth opportunities keeps the students focused on reaching their personal best all the while being their best selves.
