Middle School

Learning to Learn

Our students enter 6th grade as children and graduate from 8th grade taking their first steps to becoming responsible young adults. We provide vibrant learning environments focused on the educational and social needs of children in these grades.

Our approach combines nuturing and compassionate accountability. The middle school program provides students with the relationships and resources they need to thrive as they begin the transition to adulthood.

Our homeroom teachers trusted advisors who care for their students. Each student is assigned an advisor who works with him or her to develop personal goals for the year, and guide the student toward success.

In early adolescence, students need to acquire study skills and “learn how to learn.” To meet these needs, we stress reading, writing and speaking skills. We also teach skills in note taking, decision-making, critical thinking, problem solving and higher-order reasoning. Students are taught how to access information and use computers and other technology safely and effectively.

The middle school curriculum also emphasizes character development and promotes personal growth. Under the leadership of caring teachers, students define and strengthen their individual interests. They also master the knowledge and skills they will need to be successful in high school.
