Middle School Director
Our Middle School is a place to belong and to become, in which students are well-known and appreciated as unique individuals. The energy is happy and high in our hallways, as students view school as a safe and joyful place. Students know that they will be supported at every turn by caring and charismatic mentors, and compassionate friends.
We believe that if our students feel known and cared for -- if they feel they belong -- they can grow into young adulthood equipped with confidence and compassion, poised to live ethically, and with a hippocampus overflowing with memories of positive experiences in our Middle School."

Our physical education program is designed to be inclusive and valuable to all students regardless of their athletic ability.
Capstone, is a barometer of student agency; a chance for us to hold up the looking glass and ask, Can our students really do what we think they can do?
Courage is having the inner strength and bravery to do the “right thing” even when it is difficult.
