Middle School: Grades 5-8
"Within a short time of Sophie starting school, we noticed a big difference in our girl! She loved school and, more importantly, was HAPPY when we picked her up at the end of the day. Stanley Clark rekindled her love of learning, and her confidence soared." ~ Beth Elston, Current Parent
Middle School students graduate from Stanley Clark prepared for success in high school and beyond. Our challenging curriculum allows students to dig deep into the academic areas of mathematics, English, foreign language (Spanish, French and Latin), social studies, science and technology.
Students also explore drama, visual arts and music as part of their regular curriculum. An extensive athletic program, built into the school day, promotes physical health and good sportsmanship.
To aid in their success, students learn important study skills, engage in collaborative learning, participate in interdisciplinary projects, and are involved in an advisory program to cultivate social, ethical and emotional skills.
The middle school experience at The Stanley Clark School is unparalleled. In the last 10 years alone, 22 area high school valedictorians, 23 National Merit Scholars and 9 National Merit Scholar Finalists have been Stanley Clark graduates. Each year between 16-20 high schools come to campus for our annual High School Night to recruit our students, 99% of whom enroll in college.
Middle School Curriculum
Challenging. Inspiring. Engaging. These are a few words used to describe the unique Stanley Clark curriculum. The academic experience of students is complemented with education in the arts, athletics and character - an empowering combination that results in graduates who lead, volunteer, inspire and excel. Course descriptions may be found below. Please note that our responsive, adaptive pedagogy and desire to meet students' educational needs may necessitate additions, modifications or deletions to the curriculum midyear.
The Stanley Clark School is the place for those who love to learn. We engage, explore, compose, create. Opportunities abound for experiential learning, from on-site laboratories and flipped classrooms to local and long distance immersions and excursions.
