The Mason Middle School serves as a transition from the nurturing world of the Bass Lower School to the heightened expectations of the Bass Upper School. Faculty continue to support students’ physical, social, emotional, and academic development and help them accept more personal responsibility along the way.
In Middle School, faculty hope to broaden students’ interests by introducing them to a variety of activities. The inherent risk in “trying something new” leads to an opportunity for students to develop resilience in the face of setbacks — a valuable element of both developmental and academic maturation.
The Mason Middle School also serves to prepare students for the rigor of Upper School discipline. Faculty teach fundamental concepts in each subject area while helping students understand their personal process of successful learning. With this understanding, students can grow to appreciate and embrace the acquisition of knowledge.
The Middle School provides a positive environment for students’ social and emotional growth into adolescence, while creating individualized learning strategies to foster their unique talents and gifts.
