We believe that important dimensions of education occur outside the day-to-day classroom. Community service, special co-curricular activities, and field trips ranging from the Portland Museum of Art to an all-day outing in Boston are all important additions to our academic curriculum.
Each semester, students sign up for Activities offered by our advisors and other Middle School teachers. Each activity meets for forty minutes at midday on Tuesday. Activities reflect the passions and interests of our students and teachers, and we encourage our students to suggest new activities. Activities are open to students in all Middle Student grades and provide opportunities for cross-grade connections.
Sample activities have included the ones listed below.
