Middle School English prepares students with the skills to be successful writers, readers and literary critics.
Middle School classes are small and discussion-based, with 12-16 students per teacher. This allows teachers to engage students in a dynamic learning process of interdisciplinary, project-oriented curricula that encourages students to be inquisitive, critical thinkers.
The four-year course of study exposes students to a broad knowledge base and readies them for the scholastic commitments expected in the Upper School.
Students are required to take a comprehensive academic program. In addition to the core curriculum, Middle School students study a foreign language (Mandarin and Spanish), computer science and the arts. Students are also immersed in New York City and the world around them through overnight trips to locations such as Washington D.C. and Pennsylvania.
