Middle School Academics
Our middle school academic program is based on a progressive
platform. From 6th to 8th grade, students take on an increasingly
comprehensive and challenging curriculum. The amount and difficulty of
homework also changes during these years. A core program of language
arts, mathematics, science, social studies and physical education
defines our middle school program. Sixth graders are enrolled in
Humanities where they learn language arts and social studies; this
allows them to move more smoothly from elementary to middle school.
Selected students are able to go on to honors mathematics starting in
the 6th grade.
The goal is to help our students navigate the middle school
years while giving them the tools and encouragement to achieve
academically and personally. Our small, personalized school allows a
flexible academic program to meet the needs of all students.
