The middle school years offer students incredible growth in all aspects of their lives as they transition from childhood to young adulthood. It is a time for fostering independence as students take ownership of their learning and engagement within the classroom and in the various educational venues throughout and beyond the St. John’s campus. It is during these middle school years that students should live through a wide variety of experiences. They need to be energized about learning, forming the academic habits and honing the skills that will make them lifelong learners. They must also develop the self-discipline to work through the inevitable social challenges that characterize these years.
With the good fortune of having a strong academic population as well as an upper school destination for our students, we have the distinct opportunity to devote significant attention to student development beyond the classroom. Surrounded by knowledgeable and caring faculty members committed to cultivating people of character, middle school students at St. John’s have a wide variety of learning opportunities.
