Middle School is a time of transition. The Middle School is organized into tribes. Each tribe consists of students from the 5th through 8th grade and several teachers. The tribes plan, organize and carry out intramural physical and academics competitions among the tribes in a monthly field day.The goal of the program is to foster a sense of community and belonging within the Middle School and to prepare students to participate in the House program in the High School.
Specific Tribes Goals
- To provide a sense of belonging for each student.
- To offer opportunities to work towards the life-long goals of being a caring and ethical individual, a responsible citizen, a problem solver and a good decision-maker.
- To provide a safe environment which develops skills in group decision-making, conflict resolution, dealing with peer pressure and learning to respect others.
