Middle school is comprised of grades 6-8. In middle school, students branch out from the self- contained classrooms of lower school into a schedule that allows students to change classes and have different teachers throughout the day. In keeping with our school’s mission statement, middle school continues to teach the whole child through a rigorous academic program, appreciation for the arts and physical fitness, service learning, and valuing our spiritual awareness and Quaker principles. The schedule for middle school students provides a balance of core academic classes with enrichment classes. Students are also provided with a study hall/tutorial time twice per week, an advisory class once per week, and a devotional time every Friday where real-life situations are addressed with scripture reference. Students in middle school begin their day at 8:15 and conclude at 3:15.
Core Academic classes: Math, Language Arts, Science, Social Studies
