Middle School: 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. Explore our mission-centered curriculum below to see how students are introduced to new concepts in science, math, history, language arts, religion and foreign language.

Classes are taught by a caring, highly trained group of instructors who understand the changes associated with this developmental 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. Many opportunities are available for students to participate in art, music and theatrical productions that foster artistic expression.

Signature programs include Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM), Latin, Writing, World Language and Capstone Projects in our Character Education Program. Extracurricular clubs and activities help spark new interests and passions.

Among our outcomes, students have a median score of 90% on the high-school entrance exam and 14 percent score in the 99th percentile. Summit Middle Schoolers comprise 80 percent of the top scorers on the Upper School placement test, and that doesn't count those who skip the test because they are already taking high school level math classes. Every student is a published author before they graduate from eighth grade.
