Courses in the Middle School are thematically integrated across disciplines. The team alternates between the themes of Community and Adaptation. The English, history, and science teachers meet frequently to discuss curriculum and individual students with reference to their academic, social, and emotional development. Student learning is differentiated through varied course offerings and individualized attention within the classroom.
