Academics

Middle School | 5-8

The four years in the Middle School are designed to build creative communicators and students who participate in all their classes with a disposition of inquiry. Using traditional and non-traditional materials and sources, Middle School students become ‘problem finders’ as well as problem solvers. Classes in world languages and cultures, the visual and performing arts as well as athletics are designed to provide the early adolescent students with a balanced experience across all disciplines. A profound sense of community responsibility and ethical behavior are part of the character of students in the division.

Members of the community operate within a context of caring and respect as we pursue our quest for "useful knowledge" as "one school with three divisions."
