Features of Middle & High School

Middle School

Our Middle School program serves students Grades 6 through 8. Our program is specifically tailored to meet student's individual learning needs while focusing on critical aspects of preparation for success; including but not limited to study skills, organization, and social emotional support. 


All of our Middle School Students participate in a daily Advisory class. Advisory is a wonderful opportunity for students and staff to engage in an exploration of topics and issues related to the following skills:


ADVISORY TOPICS

  • Time management & organization
  • Goal setting
  • Stress management
  • Family and community connections
  • Effective communication
  • School culture
  • Leadership
  • Mindfulness
  • Community building
  • Social responsibility  

High School

High School, serving students in Grades 9 through 12, is where our students engage in meaningful discourse about their experiences in life and their plans for the future. Our students engage in rigorous academic courses, while also pursuing their passions in becoming well-rounded individuals. As leaders in our community, our high school students have multiple opportunities to use their skills to enhance our school culture.


Our High School Students also participate in daily Advisory programming that is similar to the program described in the Middle School section above. In High School Advisory, there is an additional emphasis on college and career planning and preparation.
