The Middle School is a perfect transition from elementary to high school environment. The class size is small which allows teachers and staff to truly know your child academically and personally. The risk of your child being lost in the world of social media seems very low as they pride themselves in looking for signs of a child struggling. The academics are very strong as well. Because the classes are small, the teachers can concentrate on each childs' needs and involve the parents to help when needed.
