Curiosity & Passion Drive Learning

When students explore their questions, passions, and interests they make
connections that expand their learning and personal development.

  • Arts and Design

    All students progress through a three-year experience in visual arts, performing arts, and maker, design, and engineering so that they advance from Middle School with not only an introduction to many aspects of arts and design, but also a taste of the many opportunities they might have in Upper School.

Learning Demands Interactive and Flexible Spaces


Designed to be a creative and collaborative space, the HIVE houses our Maker, Design, & Engineering programs allowing students access to 3D printers, computers, and high-resolution prototyping tools which allow them to explore all aspects of a maker community.

Relationships are foundational to
establishing a love of learning.


The partnership between parents and teachers is a vital one in the life of a student, and one that we seek to foster more intentionally in the Middle School. Throughout the year, there are numerous opportunities for parents, teachers, and students to connect and discuss any aspect of the students’ Middle School career.

During student-led conferences, students guide the conversation about their own development, show demonstrations of learning, and receive feedback from parents and teachers on plans for the future.
