The Middle School provides an environment that is sensitive to the emotional and academic needs of the adolescent. Emphasis is placed on helping the student understand him/herself as a learner and using this information to further develop the mind. Knowing that this can be a vulnerable period in a child’s life, teachers and students work together to constantly strengthen their community with the values of respect and kindness.
The low student teacher ratio allows for individualized instruction, a natural work pace for mastery and emotional understanding, ample time for project-based work and time to study art, music, business and other topics. Students are guided through time management exercises to help them balance the expectations and requirements of school and those from their personal lives. Acquiring this life skill during these years sets a strong foundation for personal and professional success.
