TRANSFORMATION,
CURIOSITY,
AND COURAGE

GROWING IN MIND, BODY, AND SPIRIT

At Poly, we have—since our origin—redefined the meaning of “school.” School is not a way station to life; it is life itself. And the life of our day school is multifaceted, vibrant, and always interesting. Middle School students draw on their natural curiosity and our expansive, beautiful campus and its resources to extend their learning beyond the classroom—in clubs, athletic activities, rehearsals, art studios, and in building relationships among each other and with their teachers. Because “real life” is where we are, right here, right now.
