By building upon the foundational concepts and skills formed in our Lower School, our teachers help to deepen and widen students’ critical thinking and perspectives. With the foundation of a nurturing community, our middle school cultivates both academic readiness and leadership development. Students who EXCEL can investigate by forming questions, researching, critically thinking, and creatively problem-solving for themselves and with others. Academic readiness also includes a focus on building executive functioning and social-emotional skills. Our teachers are not only subject matter experts but also coaches who will challenge and, most importantly, care for the minds of their students. Our classrooms are active, engaging, and promote exploration beyond their four walls.
