Middle School Program

The curriculum is challenging and relevant, preparing our students for college and to take their place as global citizens. At the end of the day, what matters to us is creating an atmosphere in which our students understand that they already have everything they need inside of them and our work is to help them access and connect with their intelligence and talents. We value independent thinking, learning and intellectual risk-taking. We value courage, compassion and commitment.

Optional weekly music lessons in voice and a wide variety of instruments (see below) are available through the school for an extra cost and are taught on the premises by award winning professional music masters.  Students schedule their lessons during their break periods or after school.
