Introduction to Middle School Curriculum

Learning and teaching in the middle years emphasises intellectual challenge and encourages students to make connections between what they do in school and the world beyond the classroom. It empowers students with skills for communication, intercultural understanding and global engagement. The Middle School curriculum focuses on helping student ‘learn how to learn’:

  • Develop effective work habits,
  • Develop self-confidence  
  • Develop conceptual understanding
  • Build background knowledge. 

As students transition from childhood through adolescence, Middle School offers a caring, safe and supportive environment in which students can thrive on change, prepare for high school, and establish good habits of mind for lifelong learning.

The Middle School curriculum empowers students with skills for communication, intercultural understanding and global engagement.

Rigorous Standards

We align our curriculum to rigorous standards, preparing students to undertake the renowned International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma, and/or the Advanced Placement (AP) Diplomas and courses in High School. In addition to core subjects, students study Drama, Music, Art, Health, and PE.

Middle School prepares students for the rigours of High School. Each is encouraged to participate in co- and extra-curricular activities and to choose from a variety of electives and clubs. Community service and leadership are a focus, and play a vital role in offering a complete student experience.
