Middle School (7&8)

Thriving in a Time of Transition

While establishing a superb grounding in core and specialized subjects, Middle School girls tackle the complexity of adolescence through an intentional and proactive approach to social and emotional wellness.

Middle School is often a time when students begin to chart their own path of intellectual, emotional, social, and physical transformation. Gifted and devoted teachers attend to every aspect of this journey and create courageous spaces for girls to practice leadership, challenging themselves and one another, exploring new interests, and reaching beyond their comfort zones. Girls tackle such critical issues as gender, power, identity, bias, and difference, both in their own lives and in global contexts—whether linking classroom learning to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals or travel opportunities to Costa Rica with classmates.

Students leave Middle School having taken important risks vital to their intellectual, physical, emotional, spiritual, and moral learning and growth.
