The Middle School Experience

From Learners to Leaders

With an emphasis on community, collaboration and experiential learning, the middle school at St. Anne’s builds upon the lowerschool curriculum to foster future leaders and role models.

 

Leadership

On any given day you will find middle school students leading assemblies, designing productions, guiding tours, teaching classes to younger students, attending conferences, and more.

 

Community

We value relationships: between classmates, teachers, families, and our entire preschool-8 community. Relationships are forged everyday in the classroom, in advisory, on service-learning trips, during outdoor education, and through our buddy program.

Character & Service

Respect. Gratitude. Service. These values are at the heart of who we are as a school and community. Through organized service-learning, our students actively participate in ways they can make a difference. Whether serving a meal at the soup kitchen or volunteering at the Joshua School, students feel empowered to be a changemaker.

 

Innovation

From programming robots to 3-D printing to design thinking to produce creative solutions middle school students embrace the collaborative process and learn from failure.

 

Athletics

Physical education and play are an integral part of our curriculum. We believe kids need to learn athletic skills as well as self-confidence, sportsmanship, and teamwork. Every student gets the opportunity to compete and have fun.

Academics

Our goal is to create independent, life-long learners. Small classes allow teachers to know, challenge, and support each student. Through dynamic classes, labs, and workshops, middle schoolers become critical thinkers and self-advocates who are committed to learning.

Exploration & Nature

Beyond the classroom, students build memories, grow friendships, and learn about the world. Whether they’re embarking on an outdoor education trip or visiting a national monument, students learn more about themselves and their relationship to the greater community and environment.

High School Placement

8th graders begin the year reflecting on their time at St. Anne’s and what they hope to gain from their high school experience. Our faculty and staff support families at every step in the process, encouraging thoughtful conversations about the next four years. Our goal is to help students think about what would be the right fit inside and outside the classroom.
