At Park, we have thoughtfully planned each year of Middle School to respect the distinctive developmental characteristics of adolescents.
During the Middle School years, the ability to reason abstractly and to think analytically emerges. Students begin to question the relevance of what they are learning and to think about how to apply what they know to real world situations.
They are energetic and social. They thrive in a collaborative and active learning environment.
Park’s Middle School teachers understand the complexities of this developmental phase and are committed to creating a stimulating, safe, and caring atmosphere. They are dedicated to supporting their students as they confront the many challenges of adolescence.
We make the most of the need for social interaction by providing regular opportunities for collaboration and group projects.
We channel the students’ high energy by providing a physical setting that supports movement and hands-on work. We engage their curiosity and challenge them to think critically about everything from long division to American history.
The Middle School curriculum builds upon and refines basic skills while encouraging mastery in specific topics. Our teachers seek authentic interdisciplinary connections as they work to offer a diverse curriculum, reflective of our world and of the students in our school.
Park students are inquisitive, show and earn respect, and are mature beyond their years.
