Middle School Secular Curriculum
In Middle School, students move from the concrete acquisition of skills in Lower School to learning more complex skills that require critical thinking and analysis.
Their writing carefully taught and practiced, spans across the curriculum so students can make connections from one subject to another. The synthesis of the material is what excites Middle School students as they connect information to the world around them.
Donning lab aprons in the science lab to conduct experiments helps our Middle School students realize they can become scientists, researchers, or doctors. The world of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) is opened up to our Middle School students.
Developmentally, Middle School students are in a time of transition as they grow from childhood to adolescence. Respect for their differences, both physically and psychologically, is demonstrated by our dedicated and talented Middle School faculty who understand and appreciate their age. With humor and acceptance, they guide our Middle School students through this sometimes bumpy time.
