Our Middle School program is based on the American system, but with an international flavor.
Core subjects include Language Arts, Transition Mathematics and Algebra, Humanities, Social Studies, Science, and Modern Languages including German, Spanish, and French. We have strong programs in the arts and music, computing, and health and physical education. English as an Additional Language is offered for students whose native language is not English. Most students in the Middle School take German every year, from beginner to native speaker levels.
Co-curricular activities include interscholastic soccer, basketball, track and field, volleyball, cross-country, and softball. Students are also encouraged to join in the play, student council, chorus, band, and, strings. Exploratory courses in computing, sports, dance, knowledge bowl, art, badminton, and sewing are also offered.
A typical student takes English, Science, Math, Social Studies, Physical Education, German, and a "Wheel" of nine-week exploratory courses such as health, computing, music, drama, and art. The exact course titles vary from grade to grade. French and Spanish are available for students in grades 7 and 8. Classes meet on alternate days for 75 minutes.
