The Middle School teaching staff is committed to both building relationships with their students and powerfully imparting their course-specific content. The strong sense of community that is created in the classrooms and all over campus is fostered by the supportive relationships that our teachers form with their students. In our Middle School classrooms, one will find inspired and inspiring teachers. Our teachers focus on scaffolding the learning process to help students prepare for a lifetime of learning. We spend time on both the content as well as methods for learning the content. Our teachers truly care about the whole child. They take time to support content learning in addition to wellbeing.
The Middle School offers a profound opportunity for young people to be members of a community that fosters courageous self-expression and a deep love of learning. We provide a supportive and constructive environment where students feel the freedom to explore their passions as well has have the experience of being well-guided on this road to independence. The middle school culture is one in which students’ wellbeing is of the highest priority. We strive to assist our young people to gain the skill set needed to excel in a college preparatory setting while holding onto the wonderment that is lifelong learning. We believe our students’ success in life will be a function of their ability to produce extraordinary results while maintaining healthy and sustainable lifestyles.
