Middle School

The Middle School years are a time of significant physical, emotional, and social changes for young adolescents. The Middle School program includes Grade 6, 7, and 8, and is designed to help students to be successful through this period of adjustment. Our veteran faculty is organized in teams and class sizes are small enough so that students are able to receive individualized attention.

Parents are frequently contacted with updates on their child's progress. Report cards are issued quarterly, with parents and students able to monitor progress through the online grade book. Parent conferences are scheduled for the first quarter, with student-led conferences taking place in the fourth quarter. Parents are encouraged to keep in close touch with teachers via e-mail, telephone calls, or personal contact. Teachers meet frequently to discuss the needs of individual students as well as to plan course content so that that the curriculum is accessible for each student and the transitions are as smooth as possible.

We are partners with our parents and welcome enquiries about any and all aspects of Middle School life here at AIS.
