Intellectual & Emotional Development

Our Middle School curriculum compliments the rapid intellectual and emotional development of our students by providing a thoughtfully measured transition between the discipline of early learning and the rigorous pace of advanced study. They are also exploring extracurricular opportunities through athletics, fine arts, and clubs.
