Middle School

A Safe Place to Grow and Learn

Nurturing a child’s natural love of learning in a supportive and safe environment is the guiding principle of our middle school. Much like an extended family, our teachers and administrators work side by side with students, supporting their intellectual and emotional growth with a challenging and developmentally appropriate curriculum of interactive, exploratory, and value-based experiences that encourage self-expression and creative thinking.
