Our community is exuberant, nourishing, and empowering, due, in large part, to the differences among us. Differences among the students, families, and faculty enrich our human experience in untold ways. Celebrating differences in the classroom allows the students to express and eventually define their whole self.
Our Middle School students are given a challenging and rigorous academic curriculum that emphasizes consistent, responsible study habits. In the earlier grades, students learned to read. Now they read to learn.
The school’s small size is an advantage for helping each child to develop the ability to interpret information, formulate questions, and express ideas. To help students prepare for the next stage in their education, organizational skills are stressed, including, tracking and prioritizing multiple assignments, managing time, taking notes, writing short answers and essays, and editing, correcting and evaluating one’s work. Students are trained to develop their abstract reasoning skills, and to synthesize information and apply it to different circumstances and situations.
Each year, our Middle School students star in the leading roles of our annual musical. They also participate in “Cloud Club,” where they a study and view a series of live, professional theater performances.
The Middle School also participates in classes and experiences in leadership and social responsibility. These culminate with their participation in the Midwest Montessori Model United Nations in Fort Wayne, Indiana.
