Middle School: Grades 5-8

_D3S2786 web.jpg
Middle school is a time for students to develop a strong academic background and a sense of ethical and social responsibility. A strong school network of advisors, faculty and parents work together to support students in grades 5-8 as they make a transition to greater independence and responsibility.

Comprehensive instruction teaches Middle School students to demonstrate positive social skills and manners, to employ computer technology across the curriculum and to persevere to reach their goals. Students learn to communicate effectively and appropriately orally, in writing and through the fine arts, and they are encouraged to participate in activities to explore and develop interests and talents.

Classes are scheduled and designed to facilitate interdepartmental projects and activities. Teachers work together to discuss student progress and help establish learning programs. In addition to the core curriculum of language arts, social studies, mathematics and science, students continue a broad program of foreign language, physical education and fine arts.
