Sixth through Eighth Graders, within a highly structured framework, are given more independence and expanded leadership opportunities.
An engaged and engaging faculty builds on students’ prior acquisition of facts and encourages them to view those facts, as well as newly acquired knowledge, in a broader context. The Middle School faculty believes that challenge plus support equals success.
Field Study opportunities in the Middle School are vast and diverse including ecology, biology, engineering, outdoor education, camping, art, architecture, and history, plus optional trips to Europe and the Grand Tetons.
Each middle schooler is assigned an advisor who builds and maintains a close and supportive relationship with each advisee and guides each child through all three years of Middle School. Advisors encourage students to try a variety of activities in and out of the classroom, as their advisees prepare to enter a broad range of top high school programs.
