Middle School


Grades 6-8


Our Middle School girls develop into confident young women in an intellectually engaging, relevant, inclusive and joyful environment in which risks are celebrated, feedback welcomed, skills honed, and individuals are mutually respected and supported.

Middle School is a safe place to take risks and develop a strong sense of self.
