We get it — middle school can be awkward. Let's run with that and see what can happen when we embrace "the awkward" together as students, teachers, and families.
Middle schoolers are supposed to be uncomfortable — that's the nature of being a tween! And yet, even as they're learning to make mistakes and navigate disappointments, our students are also developing grit, discovering their strengths, and finding subjects that truly ignite their passions.
We know from research and experience that middle school students want ownership over what they’re doing, what they’re learning, and where they’re headed. So, in our House System, leaders from sixth, seventh, and eighth grade work together to direct the entire experience—from student government and faculty involvement to planning and hosting a parent appreciation event.
Our middle schoolers work hard and play hard. Most importantly, they get to focus on being kids—free from the pressures of high school, in a secure, supportive environment led by dedicated, knowledgeable faculty.
