Making Middle School Matter

In grades 5-12, students have a different teacher for each subject. In grades 6-8, students take three periods each of Biology, Chemistry, and Physics weekly; differentiated math begins in grade 6; Latin in grade 5 and 6, and in grade 7, students select their World Language. We uniquely prepare students for our high school and raise student learning to a global standard.
