Increasing independence and meaningful collaborations are hallmarks of the Upper Mid division. Students are offered space and time to push themselves intellectually and artistically in authentic, hands-on learning. The academic program integrates rigorous study in traditional subject areas with creative thinking and project-based learning. Teachers guide students to construct knowledge and demonstrate learning in varied ways. In this community of active learning, students develop habits of inquiry and empathy, contributing their voice to the community within and beyond the School.
