Academics

Whether students are collecting water samples in the wetlands or practicing for an instrumental performance, inquiry is at the heart of the Middle School experience. Placing students at the center of their learning encourages them to seek out their own opportunities for intellectual growth and become lifelong learners.

The Middle School program includes courses in humanities, English, history, world languages, mathematics, science, art, instrumental and vocal music, drama, religion, technology, Health and Wellness, and physical education.

Curriculum is developed by individual classroom teachers in collaboration with each other, their departments, and with the Head of Middle School. In addition to the needs of this particular age group, the curricula of both the Lower and Upper Schools are considered in developing any new programs.
