Vision for Middle School 

Middle School is Both a Transition and a Bridge

Our middle schools build on the student-centered learning environments that are fostered in elementary school. Students in 6th through 8th grade develop skills of resilience and academic commitment as they face new challenges inside and outside of the classroom. Students learn to navigate the new level of independence and autonomy that middle school provides.
