Middle School student life
In Middle School, students are becoming more independent and figuring out who they are as individuals. Spending time with peers doing activities they enjoy is an important part of this process, and the Middle School student life program reflects that.
Much of our student life programming takes place during the school day. The advisory program is where academic life and student life come together, and the work students do in advisories defines life and community in the Middle School. Our experiential learning opportunities are tied to the curriculum and some, like the Grade 7 retreat to Camp Widjiwagan, are significant rites of passage. Activities are similar to the Mini program in the Lower School, and offer students a wide range of electives that are a fun change of pace from their academic subjects.
The vast majority of Middle School students--almost 80%--participate in one or more of our interscholastic athletic teams, and many students also take advantage of the Private Music Lesson program that offers individualized instruction at the Randolph Campus before or after school. Additional After School Programs include drama, Lego League, and a supervised program offering care until 6 p.m. on school days.
