Your child's developing adolescent brain deserves a special approach. That's why we choose special curricula.
How is Our Middle School Different?
In the Middle School, your child is at a unique stage: discovering independence but needing support. By using both the National Curriculum of England and the IMYC, we offer a great solution.
Specialist teachers will guide your child through a broad range of subject areas, setting individualized goals and carefully tracking their progress. Through the National Curriculum for England, your child will study English, mathematics, science, history, geography, French, Spanish, or Mandarin, as well as computer skills, art, performing arts and physical education.
The depth of study in each area ensures that over the three years of the Middle School, your child will lay a solid foundation for High School.
International Middle Years Curriculum (IMYC)
The IMYC provides your child with a unique opportunity absent from the typical American middle school model: the opportunity to make learning connections between the various subjects.
Over the course of the year, students focus on several "big ideas" that are applied to all subject areas. This promotes "big picture" thinking and challenges your child to extend their focus beyond the facts of a subject and see how a "big idea" flows across many disciplines.
Supporting Your Child
Mentors touch base with students daily, helping to ensure that your child is navigating comfortably through the challenges of adolescent life. Weekly group meetings with the Head of Middle School also ensure good communication and guidance.
The middle school years are an exciting time that deserve special attention. We provide it.
