Middle School

“A good middle school above all else, instills in students that all important sense that their teachers care about them and want them to succeed.” (NAIS, Gray Smith, Independent School, Summer 2012)

Welcome to The Middle School at The Calverton School! The above quote from an article in this summer’s NAIS publication, Independent School, describes one of the many long-standing, traditional values of Calverton. Calverton has always been a place where students are challenged intellectually in a safe, loving and nurturing environment. A middle school in particular must meet this standard in order for its young adolescent students to be as successful as they can be; for achieving academic success is intertwined with the developing social and emotional needs of this age group. (NAIS, Independent School, Summer 2012) Calverton’s Middle School program is designed to meet these unique needs. Our faculty are also student advisors and spend quality individual and small group time with students to support the varied needs of each child. This unique relationship between our staff and students is a very special thing of which we are extremely proud.

The Middle School at The Calverton School supports the developmental transition of students in grades six through eight as they master the necessary skills to achieve future success in our Upper School and beyond. Calverton provides a positive, sensitive and academically focused atmosphere in which students become aware of their role in the world around them. We seek to promote citizenship, honor, and mutual respect through high expectations and responsibility. Students are granted the independence to take risks and to make daily decisions within the cocoon of a safe, loving environment. As students emerge from the Middle School, they have learned the importance of self-discipline, responsibility and respect for themselves and others.
