Why Choose a Private Middle School?

Choosing a middle schooler's educational experience is an exciting and challenging decision. Your student needs a place where they can thrive academically and build on the skills they began learning in elementary school. It's also essential that this environment offers an uplifting and encouraging experience that will make your child excited to pursue their future education. Our middle school, located in Princeton, NJ, provides this environment through unique opportunities for hands-on growth.
From academic enrichment to a feeling of community, parents choose to send their middle schoolers to our private Princeton middle school for a wide variety of reasons. Here are some of the many benefits our middle school students enjoy:
  • Opportunities for academic growth
  • Small class sizes and one-on-one educational opportunities that encourage personalized learning
  • Support in a connected community of teachers, mentors, and peers
  • Well-rounded extracurricular opportunities, clubs, art, and athletic programs


What to Expect From the Hun Middle School

At our private Princeton, NJ, middle school, we channel the energy and passion of our students into each of our traditional and unconventional learning activities. Through our unique approach to education, middle schoolers will create their own learning experiences, which they'll take with them long into the future as they ask questions and find answers both together and independently.
Because our typical class size is 13 students, our middle school faculty can work meaningfully with each student to discover their unique gifts and encourage their continued growth. Through opportunities such as our after-school Learning Lab — where students can do their homework alongside a teacher — middle schoolers can continue to develop their skills and build meaningful relationships with staff and other students outside the classroom. Not only will they grow academically, but they'll also be enriched emotionally and mentally as they build lasting personal connections with caring mentors and peers.


Our Middle School Curriculum

Each grade's curriculum at the Hun Middle School is designed to help students build on their previous education and experiences while preparing them with the skills and knowledge they'll need in 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 grades take a Study Strategies course to build their study skills, as well as a music theory course and performing and visual arts classes.
Students in seventh grade build on existing skills while encountering new problem-solving situations that allow them to apply their learning to the world around them. Along with math, science, history and English, seventh graders take a health class, language course 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.
