Our Middle School program immerses students in the higher-order mathematical disciplines of algebra and geometry. The Middle School course of study begins with a review of basic mathematics and progresses through with Pre-Algebra Algebra I, Geometry, and Algebra II. All students complete Algebra I by the end of 9th Grade; most students also complete Geometry. An accelerated track allows us to offer an appropriately challenging program for our most advanced students, when appropriate. Students in the upper grades proceed through a sequence of courses that best suits their learning styles.
The sixth grade Festival of the World caps a yearlong study of global cultures, religions and geography. Each student studies a different country, creating a range of informational and artistic projects, including a model of a famous landmark.
