At each grade in the Middle School, anchor teachers and specialists work collaboratively to design curriculum focused on overarching questions that target key concepts and skills. In all grades students engage in learning that is both meaningful to their own lives and connected across subject areas. Through a wide range of topics, students build academic and social skills that require critical thinking and cooperation.
In the spring of each year, every Fourth Grader is magically transformed into a famous visual artist. On a special day in May, each one of them presents to an audience of parents and guests an insight into the artist’s life through a brief biography, a fictitious postcard home and letter to a friend, and an iconic masterwork. This year’s pantheon of personages included James Audubon, Pablo Picasso, Vincent van Gogh, Georgia O’Keeffe, Alexander Calder, Edward Hopper, Claude Monet, Salvador Dali, Jackson Pollock, and Winslow Homer, among others.
