WHAT MAKES A SUCCESSFUL MIDDLE SCHOOL?

Heartfelt and exciting curriculum and social activities, including time to laugh, consider, ponder, wonder, and discuss. With the sciences, arts, and academic exploration of sensitive topics, and laws of nature, the children come to grasp their own capacity to impact the world and their community.

Our middle school students are kind, compassionate, loving, sweet, silly, saucy, and filled with life!  As a group, they are beginning to spend more time on individual interests and thoughts, in both the classroom projects and at home.  Our middle school students enjoy changing elective programs with ceramics, modeling, English Country Folk Dance, and so much more.  They are bright, eager, intelligent youngsters and we are proud of them!




The grades are located in a sunny beautiful lower level of a large church located in the beautiful Irvington Neighborhood, we enjoy a large paved play area and a garden space with vegetable area, a hand made sand box tucked into a corner, basketball hoops, and within 2 blocks, a lovely private green space with labyrinth and play space for recreation.  We love our strings and band program, it is so much fun!
