Welcome to the Middle School: Grades 5-8
Persevere through the process - in the end you will learn so much.
Head of Middle School Kathleen Humora's advice to MS students
The objective of the Middle School program is for students to take responsibility for their own learning. Emphasis is placed on building content knowledge and 21st Century skills. The curriculum develops students as critical thinkers, problem solvers, communicators and collaborators with experiences that promote technology, innovation and creativity.
Fifth and sixth grade students work on strengthening organization, time management and work habits. Seventh and eighth grade students are expected to take on more responsibility for the learning process by advocating for themselves both inside and outside of the classroom. Students are well prepared for the challenges of secondary school.
