Welcome to 7th and 8th Grade
As the culmination of our program, seventh and eighth grades focus on developing the ability to engage in abstract thinking and synthesize and analyze complex issues. Upper school students participate in grade-based and mixed-age classes. The program is strongly project-based, with a focus on integrated, hands-on learning. Outdoor education, service learning, and advisory programs support students’ growth in study skills, organization, self-knowledge, resilience, and empathy. Upper schoolers act as mentors and leaders of the school community in clubs, on the playground, and with buddy classes.
