Exceptional Academic Experience Our goal is to provide our students with an exceptional academic experience in a warm and supportive environment rich in opportunities for young people to learn, explore and grow. Our strong academic program is designed to provide students the foundational skills needed to think critically and creatively throughout their education and beyond.
Joyous Time We believe that the middle school years should be a joyous time, combined with new experiences, hard work and fun. Our students genuinely enjoy coming to school! Visitors notice and often comment on the energy, enthusiasm and sense of community evident in the classrooms, hallways and playing fields.
Dedicated Faculty Our faculty members are dedicated to teaching a specific grade and have a deep understanding of adolescent development. All middle school teachers are either coaches or club sponsors. Working together, our teachers have developed a comprehensive program that addresses the intellectual, social and emotional needs of our students.
