St. Andrew’s Middle School is a small, structured, and supportive program. Faculty work with students on academic content, while at the same time developing students’ study skills and organizational strategies. As a result, students work to become independent learners, increase their sense of self-esteem, and gain confidence in their abilities.
Students in our Middle School study within the International Baccalaureate (IB) Middle Years Programme (MYP), which serves students in grades 6 through 10. With a focus on interdisciplinary teaching and learning, the MYP addresses the developmental needs of students in this age group and prepares them for participation in the IB Diploma Programme, postsecondary success, and life in an increasingly interconnected world. The IB MYP challenges students to make practical connections between their studies and the real world — and is inclusive by design, with students of all interests and academic abilities benefiting from their participation. Within our Middle School's small, tailored classes, students are supported in their development to become effective communicators, critical thinkers, efficient workers, and strong community members.
