Middle School

Welcome from Kathy Christoph, MS Principal

Dear Parents and Students,

Explore, Experience, Excel!  These words capture the enthusiasm and excitement you’ll find within the walls of our Middle School. Our students and faculty love to be here, and we want your child to love to be here, too.  Every day, our students explore several worlds: the world of academics, the world of arts and athletics, the world of ethics, and the world of the 21st century problem-solving skills. They experience the thrill of intellectual pursuit, the delight of finding new interests, the joy in social friendships, the pleasure of challenging oneself, and the excitement of developing leadership skills. They excel in the classroom, on the stage, on the playing fields, in the music halls, in making ethical decisions, and in solving meaningful problems in creative ways.

Our students are challenged, nurtured, mentored, celebrated, and encouraged in a vast array of ways by the fabulous cadre of teachers.  As our students grow emotionally, physically and intellectually, we are there to guide them along the way, gently pushing them and supporting them, and picking them up when they falter.

Our core curriculum, along with our enrichment programs, supports our school mission. Our students stretch their thinking, develop critical learning skills, and expand their horizons. Our Discovery Classes, our HomeBase system, and our Activity Period are just a few of the exploratory and innovative programs that capitalize on students’ interests and extend their learning. Our Service Learning Community Connections and our Leadership Program provide experiences for our students to become ethical citizens of the world.

I encourage and invite you to explore the excitement found within our Middle School learning environment.
