Focusing on the Whole Child
Academic excellence at the Harold C. Schott Middle School is promoted through instruction that is both rigorous and highly supportive. Building on skills taught during Lower School grades, students are introduced to new concepts in science, math, history, language arts, religion and foreign language. Classes are taught by a caring, dedicated group of instructors who understand the dramatic changes associated with this period of life. Faculty members participate in weekly team meetings to monitor students progress, and to ensure that lesson plans and curricula are fully integrated.
Middle school students develop social values and continue on a journey of spiritual growth through attendance at bi-weekly Mass, daily recitation of our Character Pledge, and participation in Christian Service training. Physical education classes emphasize sportsmanship and teamwork while promoting physical development. The Middle School program includes opportunities for students to participate in art, music, and drama classes and productions that foster artistic expression. Extracurricular clubs and activities help spark new interests and passions.
