Middle School

Middle School years are an exciting time of exploration as students discover a variety of academic and extracurricular opportunities, their personal interests and passions, and ultimately who they are.

The Middle School grades (sixth through eighth) are a time of dynamic transition and discovery for students—and at Grace School, a vibrant academic program encourages them to take increasing ownership of their learning while nurturing leadership and collaboration skills.

In these years, students are challenged to go beyond their academic comfort zones in a program anchored by engagement with increasingly complex real-world problems, an emphasis on creative and innovative thinking and steadfast social-emotional support through the changes of adolescence.

In Middle School, students complete a rigorous schedule in all core disciplines, and students can choose electives beginning in Sixth Grade. The Grace Middle School curriculum emphasizes depth of learning over breadth of exposure, and its chief vehicles are project- and inquiry-based learning. The spiral of the curriculum is essential and highly apparent in these grades as students prepare for entry into high school coursework.

Our passionate faculty and small class sizes give students the freedom to make mistakes and to learn resilience and ownership in the process. Students witness the impact that being prepared and developing good study skills will have on their education. While self-advocacy and executive functioning skills are emphasized in all grades throughout the Grace School curriculum, they are of particular focus in the Middle School to prepare students for high school.
