Middle School

The Middle School program is designed to promote academic and personal growth in our students. We expect them to be responsible learners and help them develop an awareness of self and others. With appropriate challenges and the support of a caring faculty, our students develop a genuine sense of self esteem. Critical thinking, research, and organizational skills are taught across disciplines; an integrated language arts and history program is offered in fifth and sixth grades; and small group teaching, collaborative and cooperative learning, and peer review are stressed. Interscholastic athletic competition in soccer, field hockey, basketball, and lacrosse begins in fifth grade.
