The Middle School curriculum is designed to help students build on their previous education and experiences, while developing the skills and knowledge they'll need to thrive in the Upper School and beyond.
Throughout sixth grade, students are eased into Middle School with challenging and exciting classes that encourage independent learning. Beyond English, social studies, science, and pre-algebra, we offer yearly electives to develop students' skills and interests. All sixth graders take a language, music theory course, performing and visual arts classes, as well as a Study Strategies course to identify their individual learning styles and advance their study skills.
Students in seventh grade build on existing skills while encountering new independence, mastering time management techniques and problem-solving challenges. Along with math, science, history and English, seventh graders take a language, health class, technology elective, and a performing and visual arts class.
Finally, eighth graders develop their critical thinking skills with classes and activities that extend beyond the classroom. Our English, geography, science and algebra classes prepare students with the skills they need for success in high school. They'll also take a language class, health class, and performing and visual arts class, as well as other electives.
