Middle School

Philosophy​

Our middle school students, grades 6 – 8 are continually evolving and changing physically, intellectually, socially and emotionally. Working in partnership with the Social Worker, Guidance Counselor and Learning Specialist, teachers are aware of the profile of each individual student before September. As the teachers and specialists learn the academic/emotional background of each student, we work together to ensure that each student’s needs are being met, providing them with invaluable support.

 

At The Smith School we encourage our middle school students to live by the following values:

  • Academic & Personal Honesty

  • Acceptance & Understanding of Others

  • Self-Advocacy, Leadership, Compromise
