The Middle School curriculum provides a comprehensive academic and behavioural foundation that prepares students for the demands they will encounter in the Upper School. The curriculum addresses the whole child by encouraging special talents and accommodating each student’s learning style.
Our Middle School teachers are nurturing and patient as they challenge the intellectual abilities of each student. We have created a highly successful learning environment enhanced by talented and energetic teachers. Class sizes in the Middle School are capped at 20 students and allow for a significant amount of teacher-student interaction.

English, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies, Language acquisition (Mandarin), Health and Physical Education, Art and Music. Students take exploratory subjects (one each quarter - Computers, STEAM, Journalism, Language Acquisition, Speech Making/Debate).
