Middle School

The creation of a unique Middle School division comes from the school’s most recent Strategic Plan. During these transitional years, students change significantly – physically, intellectually, morally, psychologically, and socio-emotionally. The academic growth and personal development experienced during these important years significantly impact their futures.
