The Middle School years form the critical transition period from students competent
in the basics of reading, writing and mathematics to students launched into more
serious academic study. For Middle School students, our concentration is on maintaining
and raising the standards of those basic tools learned earlier, becoming focused
and independent as students and getting an increased conceptual understanding of
how academic subjects integrate and relate to real life. Additionally, specific
courses and projects are designed to raise the students' willingness and ability
to draw conclusions and make judgments about the information they're learning.
Students generally enter Middle School around the age of eleven and a half and graduate
to Upper School by fourteen years of age.
