Welcome to the Middle School

The three main facets of the mission statement — the development of exemplary character, self-knowledge and the ability to lead — serve as the foundation of the Middle School program. Students engage in a dynamic and innovative curriculum that prioritizes the development of a deep conceptual understanding that is gained largely by "doing."

Courses in the Middle School are focused largely on developing the skills and habits of mind that will make them more effective lifelong learners, such as curiosity, perseverance, open-mindedness, communicating with accuracy and precision, and developing empathy. The regular discussion of and emphasis on the school’s core values result in their understanding, espousal and integration into daily life.

The examination of new ideas, exposure to new courses, discovery of new environments, and evolution of new talents all help students to develop a strong sense of self and of one’s place in the greater community. These years are a time of excitement, exploration, growth and change.
