Middle School – 5th to 8th Grade
Your child’s Middle School years are key to answering the questions, “Who am I? Who do I want to be?” Children are not all the same, so we don’t treat them that way. Our Middle School teachers to get to know each of the students individually, learning each student’s strengths and challenges, and guiding them along paths of discovery and growth.
The Middle School curriculum strengthens traditional academic skills while encouraging creative problem-solving, communication, and teamwork. With an emphasis on organizational and study skills, students learn to manage their time to accomplish their goals. Personal responsibility and integrity are key components of a Lakehill education and are emphasized in all personal, interpersonal, and digital interactions.
In fifth and sixth grades, students take two courses in language arts – literature and grammar– along with mathematics, social studies, science, and physical education. Students have semester courses in music, art, Spanish, and computer studies.
In seventh and eighth grades, students add Latin to the core requirements as well as four electives which may include Choir, Computer Studies, Drama, Engineering, Musical Theater, Makerspace Studio, and Robotics. Students are also encouraged to participate in Lakehill’s comprehensive athletics program and community service activities.
