The Middle School

Our Middle School is a small, structured, and supportive program for students in grades 6 through 8. Guided by the International Baccalaureate (IB) Middle Years Programme* curriculum, faculty focus on academic content, while at the same time developing students' study skills and organizational strategies. We teach our middle schoolers to respect and appreciate hard work, as well as themselves and others, by making every day an exciting, engaging, affirmative experience. As a result, students become independent learners, increase their self-esteem, and gain confidence in their abilities.
