Finding their way
As a member of the National Middle School Association, Saint Mark’s Episcopal School subscribes to the theory that middle school is the “finding place.” Because young adolescents are curious by nature, our curriculum fosters a sense of exploration.
In Middle School, students in grades sixth through eighth leave the self-contained classroom and move between classes for core subjects. In addition to their core courses, students enjoy elective classes. Students are placed in math classes, including algebra and geometry, based on diagnostic testing and teacher recommendations. They also participate twice weekly in Middle School Prides, a time to come together to discuss important issues that affect their daily lives.
Students are well equipped for their high school experience and are accepted to highly respected high schools, most often their first choice. As a result of their experience in Middle School at Saint Mark’s, our students become strong leaders, independent thinkers, and thoughtful contributors in their high school communities.
