Critical Transition Years

Middle School is a critical transition period in a child’s life that fosters skills to empower successful adults. Students move away from the homeroom teacher model and gain independence and enhanced rigor through instruction by subject specialists for every class. In addition to guidance from expert faculty in content areas, teachers will focus on the IB Approaches to Learning to build research, reflection, language, and social and communication skills to be effective learners and foster success in the high school years and beyond.
