Middle school is comprised of grades 5-8. In middle school, students branch out of 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, enrichment classes, and electives.
Students are also provided with a study hall/tutorial time twice per week, advisory meeting to start the day each morning, and a devotional time every Thursday where real-life situations are addressed with scripture reference. Our Enrichment classes include: Spanish, Art, PE, Chorus, and Technology.
Students in middle school begin their day at 8:15 and conclude at 3:15.
