Middle school is an exhilarating time of personal development for scholars, both academically and emotionally; one that requires a supportive (and patient) network of adults to teach the skills needed for increased independence.
Our middle school academics are world-class and hand-crafted. There is an entire team dedicated to choosing the very best texts in which scholars engage across subjects. No processed generic textbooks, instead Middle School teachers specialize and dive deep into material, sparking passion in their scholars and setting them on the path to college success.

Only 9 percent of the 16,577 students from across the world who participated in last year’s Math Olympiads were able to correctly answer every question in the competition. One of those students, SA Harlem East 7th grader Branden Williams, shares his passion for math and his approach to tackling challenging problems with us.
Colleges by design are very independent places, and starting in middle school we give scholars the direct instruction and time to practice the collegiate work habits that will set them up for success. Exposure to an extensive elective program allows scholars to discover the talents and passions they will take forward into their careers.
Our very intentional focus on college persistence beginning in middle school is incredibly unique. It’s something that makes us one of the most revolutionary schools around the world.

The middle school status quo simply won’t do. Middle school should be an exhilarating time of development and independence, and our job is to empower students to make the most of that.
