Middle School students at Stargate are fully immersed in student life that carries beyond the curriculum. These students are taking field trips, making overnight trips, running student government, playing soccer, basketball and volleyball, and performing. In class, they are continuing to work well above grade level, leveraging high school texts in literacy, science, math and elsewhere.
Our strong middle school program blends academic rigor with an intentional emphasis on social-emotional growth. Like all adolescents, our students have complex and multifaceted needs. Thus, we actively support their quest to develop their personal identity and to see themselves as members of a community. Whether in structured activities with their peer group, in leadership roles with younger students, in competition and cooperation with other schools, or in service to the community and wider world, our students learn to balance their individualism with the needs of diverse groups. The middle school program represents a special time at Stargate and we work to make it memorable.
