Middle School

About our Middle School

Each Middle School grade includes the four core subjects language arts, math, science, and social studies along with music, art, and five world language options, and nearly all RISE courses are complemented by online activities that act like the hands-on material in a real classroom. In Middle School, students are challenged to examine more in-depth topics, such as:

English: Literary interpretation, analytical writing, and oral communication skills

Math: Problem-solving skills in geometry, algebra, probability, and statistics

Science: Earth, physical, and life science at standard or advanced levels

Social studies: Interconnected surveys in American and world history, from prehistoric to modern times

World languages: Competency-level language development in Spanish, French, German, Latin, or Chinese

Art: Studies of great works of art, and the artists and cultures behind them

In grades 6–8, the parent’s role adjusts to approximately 2 to 4 hours per day, as students take on more independent learning. This helps ensure that students master more complex ideas—like algebra, literary analysis, world history, and physical science—and feel prepared for Upper School. Teachers help students with challenging topics by, for instance, offering live online tutoring sessions. >
