For Ages 12-15
Every component of the Middle School program is designed to respond to the psychological needs and developmental characteristics of the young adolescent for rigorous study, meaningful work, and community involvement. The curriculum is derived from the work in the elementary program, including an understanding of the interdependence of nature and humankind and of one’s place and role in the universe. A significant focus of study is human history, for the story of human life on earth unites science and the humanities in a dramatic manner. Mathematics is embraced from an historical perspective. The mathematical mind of the adolescent child explores both practical math issues and the abstract challenges of algebra and geometry.
