  • Positive attitudes and development of high self-esteem are important lower school goals.
  • Students learn to accept responsibility for their academic progress and behavior.
  • Students who have demonstrated academic excellence, an ability to work independently, and an eagerness to go beyond the basic curriculum are offered the opportunity to participate in enrichment classes.
  • In grades 5-8, we continue to emphasize high self-esteem and stress the importance of responsibility through a departmentalized team approach.
  • Wide variety of extracurricular activities is offered to all middle schoolers.
