At the center of our program, our advisors coach, guide, support, and encourage students through each step. In 6th grade, students find a team of teachers working with them to master the novelties of their own lockers and switching classes each period. Advisors introduce and reinforce organizational and study strategies to develop executive functioning skills for students to hone throughout their lives.
7th and 8th grades, advisors meet with students weekly to review previous work and reinforce study strategies. Relationships with advisors and teachers are the bedrock of the middle school experience.
Building healthy relationships with peers and adults is an important part of the journey of middle school. Our experienced teachers help students traverse the often rocky terrain of pre-adolescence. When necessary, our school counselor is available to reel in a student who has strayed from the path.
The middle school's challenging academic program lays a foundation for success in our International Baccalaureate program in 11th and 12th grades. The SGS middle school help students experience the excitement of discovery and the joy of service and leadership.
All of this is grounded in our Core Values of honesty, respect, generosity of spirit, and best efforts.
We would welcome the opportunity to work with you and your child at Saint George's Middle School.
Assistant Head of School for Secondary Education
