In the middle grades (6-8), students are challenged to grapple with increasingly complex real-world problems across all their subject areas, while developing the collaboration and leadership skills that will be critical in the upper grades. Our program is designed to push students outside of their academic comfort zones while providing steadfast social-emotional support through the changes of adolescence. We emphasize:
Deep engagement in both English and Portuguese, across subject areas
Academic mentorship and social-emotional support through the Deans Program
An inquiry- and project-based approach in science and the humanities
