What does the Reggio-inspired environment look like in Grades 7-8?
We know that the Middle School years are a period of rapid growth and change for pre-teens. We know that they want greater independence but we also know that they need to experience that growing independence in a safe and secure environment. Our Middle School students eat in a special area of the piazza, reserved for them. We engage them as leaders who assist other students and take on complex learning projects.
Our Middle School students get to utilize all areas of the school for their learning and enrichment. This includes our piazza (an open public space used for community gatherings), science lab, maker space, yoga and meditation room, full gymnasium, and kitchen. Middle School students also enjoy our outdoor spaces, including outdoor education in the Saigeon Valley trail, located directly behind our school.
