At the heart of the Middle School is a traditional, challenging curriculum rooted in fundamentals which are presented by our engaging, caring professionals.
In the Middle School, your child’s development builds on the skills mastered in the earlier grades, while providing a bridge to the challenges of high school. Your child will assume more responsibility for their work and have more choices in elective subjects, as well as access to clubs, teams, and a guidance counselor. Some students may place into high school level courses.
Your child’s readiness for high school requires social and emotional development. For this reason, each student has a faculty advisor who functions as the “parent on campus” during these three critically formative years.
The "Capturing Kids' Hearts" philosophy, "If you have a child's heart, you have their head" is used as teachers greet students at the classroom door each day and target their special interests to engage and empower them in a meaningful way.
