Our Middle School Program provides a unique bridge from Elementary to High School while recognizing the growing needs of students in today’s world. Middle School teachers are equipped to instruct and guide students in their development of executive functioning skills like organization and note-taking while teaching their disciplines in a manner that incorporates learning differentiation and cognitive development. These are grafted into classroom instruction in a way that does not overwhelm or overburden the student. The program is intentionally designed to educate students in these three very different and distinct grades.
