there’s a reason we end in 8th grade
Our students are empowered to make informed decisions about their education.
With the support of their parents and teachers, Seventh Grade students begin the high school selection process. As students collaborate with the Director of Upper School Placement, they develop a clear understanding of their strengths, learning styles, and interests. Students are able to own the selection process and choose a high school that is the best match for their individual goals and needs.
A nurturing environment allows students to be their age.
We inspire our students to discover themselves as learners, friends, and community contributors without the social pressures of older students. Our students enter Middle School with the skills and routines developed from our Twos program forward that help them thrive during a time in adolescence where many children feel socially and emotionally vulnerable.
A sense of belonging fosters well-educated and confident students who are ready to lead.
Our students feel a true sense of belonging with their classmates and teachers because they are able to experience an inclusive, consistent learning environment during the most formative time in their lives. According to a study by New York University, students who attend a K–8 school have more positive views and confidence in their academic abilities when compared to their counterparts at traditional middle schools.
