• About the Middle School Level 

    Intentional Design.  Middle school is an important transitional time that bridges the gap between the foundational years of elementary school and the increasing academic complexity of the high school level. The middle school experience has been designed to promote academic rigor in a safe and structured environment, while supporting the exploration of multiple academic disciplines and extracurricular activities.

    Our Goals.  The distinct nature of young adolescents guides the decision-making process about school organization, policies, curriculum, instruction, and assessment. Our goal at the middle level is to ensure that every student learns and every member of the learning community is held to high expectations. Our teaching staff endeavors to provide all students with the knowledge and skills necessary to take responsibility for their lives, to address life's challenges, to function successfully at all levels of society, and to be creators of knowledge.
