Middle School

Grade 6 through Grade 8

Class discussions and projects are designed to foster self-respect, empathy, commitment and compassion. Important decisions, events and social changes are examined in a context of social responsibility. Curricular initiatives address ways to provide thoughtful inclusion of skills that focus on ensuring students have the foundation and discipline to competently and independently approach studies and apply what they have learned. As the students advance, assignments and assessments challenge them to use information in novel ways and to think compassionately, flexibly and critically. It is our hope that students leave Middle School with a deep understanding of their gifts and their limitations, respect for intellectual pursuits, and a clear sense of their responsibility to each other and the greater community.
