The Middle School serves as a transition from the nurturing world of the Lower School to the heightened expectations of the Upper School. The Middle School faculty will continue to support students’ physical, social, emotional and academic development and help them accept more personal responsibility along the way.
The Middle School faculty seeks to introduce students to a variety of activities. While passion for an activity or in a subject area is encouraged, the faculty hopes to broaden students’ interests rather than encourage specialization.
With the transfer of responsibility to students and the inherent risk in “trying something new” come inevitable setbacks, even failures. The Middle School years are a developmentally appropriate time to experience these setbacks. Learning to recover from and avoid future setbacks is deemed a valuable element of both developmental and academic maturation.
The Middle School faculty will teach fundamental concepts in each subject area so that our students will be ready for the rigor of Upper School discipline. Equally important is the Middle School faculty’s efforts to help students understand their personal process of successful learning and, with this understanding, to appreciate and embrace the acquisition of knowledge.
With warm regards,
Head of Middle School
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.
