Teaching & Learning

The Middle School provides a transition from the homeroom atmosphere of the Lower School to the departmental configuration of the Upper School. The curriculum challenges students with a vigorous academic program combined with an emphasis on the whole child. The core of the Middle School academic program includes studies in the arts, English, history, mathematics, modern language, physical education, and science. Frequent field trips, service learning projects, and interscholastic sports programs enhance the regular classroom experience.
