We’re a noisy, messy school in really good ways. There is such joy in guiding our Middle Schoolers as they begin to define their talents and interests, develop important study skills and take on increased responsibility as members of the school community.
We believe that deep, sustained learning is underpinned by relationships: students with their teachers who manage each individual’s progress, as well as students with their peers who work collaboratively in classrooms and advisory groups. With the support of teachers, advisors, grade deans and athletic coaches, students become more independent in their learning, more critical in their thinking, and they begin to exercise leadership skills.
