Middle School Experience

Our students learn to think deeply, write passionately, and engage thoughtfully through rigorous learning experiences. From student-led discussions, to analyzing texts, to researching and visiting local colleges, students grow by stepping out of their comfort zone.

Personalized learning approaches address each child’s individual needs. We emphasize social-emotional lessons, awareness, and reflection that support student growth.

Emphasis on the importance of diversity, equity, and inclusion further empowers middle school students to develop their unique social and communication skills, fosters belonging, and encourages growth.
