We’ve found students in The Hun Middle School benefit from the culture of participation and encouragement found in athletics, performing arts, and clubs.
In order to foster growth and development, we’ve built these co-curricular activities into the school day. Clubs meet once a week, usually during the period following lunch, and the last period of each school day is dedicated to sports.
Students can select a club to join on a trimester basis. The clubs may vary year-to-year based on the interests of students and faculty. Some of the clubs students can join are:
- First Lego League
- PoPP (Power of Positive People)
- Community Service
- Math Counts
- Battle Bots
Middle School Athletic Requirement
Additionally, all students are required to participate in three seasons of athletics or wellness activities. At the heart of the athletic program in the Middle School is skills development, but careful attention is also placed on the development of sportsmanship concepts, team cooperation, and self-confidence.
Athletics and wellness activities offered at the Middle School level are:
- Cross country
- Field hockey
- Conditioning/ physical education
- Baseball/ softball
Middle School Performing Arts Requirement
Enhancing our students' performance abilities is a fundamental curricular aim in The Hun Middle School. We've built the arts requirement into the curriculum, to encourage students to learn, refine, and present skills they've acquired while working with our art, music, and technology teachers.
Students can choose to study band, chorus, drama, music, or visual art. These classes meet during the school day for a full semester each. Depending on their interests, students can choose to take band or chorus for a full year, or they can split up their time between one music class and one arts class.
In the Hun Middle School, we know that building a positive school culture is the result of thoughtful, intentional programming. That's why we offer a menu of tech-free social events for our students throughout the year. These opportunities to come together as a community outside of the typical school day are an important part of our students' emotional development, with our enthusiastic teachers and mentors providing support and supervision. Here's a list of some typical Middle School Social Events, which generally take place on Friday nights during the school year:
- Haunted Hayride
- Raider House Party
- Middle School Game Night
- An Epic Gingerbread House Contest
- Class Trips to NYC, Hersey Park, Philadelphia
- Princeton University Night Out (basketball or ice hockey)
- Field Day
- Trampoline Park / Laser Tag
