Middle School offers increasingly sophisticated concepts across subject areas: deep mathematical thinking, challenging literature, scientific experimentation, physical education, and opportunities to engage the world creatively with music and through studio and performing arts. At Green Acres, these serve as the foundation of our program, with teachers and students building on them as they question, debate, experiment, and reflect collaboratively on what they are learning.
We expect students to work hard and to think hard. Our program is built around challenging projects that are collaborative and authentic to develop the kinds of skills our students will be honing for the rest of their lives.
And, most notably, our students learn to love learning. No skill or predisposition is more integral to success in our fast-changing world. By inspiring students with thought-provoking challenges and by allowing students to explore their passions within the structures of the curriculum, Green Acres helps to inspire the innate curiosity that all children have.
