Westchester's Middle School is a safe haven in which students are encouraged to explore academic, artistic, and athletic interests. With an energetic teaching staff, students enthusiastically develop learning and study habits as they continue to solidify the foundation imperative for lifelong education. Teachers model practices that encourage students to consistently strive for their best in every endeavor. Focused on educating the entire student, our middle school program offers opportunities for character development through service learning activities, leadership positions, as well as a personal advisory program.
Middle School students (Grades 6-8) move from the self-contained classrooms of the Lower School to a rotating schedule with different teachers for every subject. This allows the students to take greater responsibility for their learning. Self-discovery through reading, writing, science experiments, solving math problems, and mastering a foreign language becomes an important part of their daily lives. All Middle School classes are taught at honors level, which pushes students to think critically and analytically, not simply memorizing facts and statistics, but developing skills that will last a lifetime. Middle School students study literature, grammar, mathematics, science, social studies, and either Mandarin or Spanish. Instruction in art, music, technology, public speaking, and physical education rounds out their schedules.
