Middle School Curriculum

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.
