Student Life, Clubs and Activities


In addition to our extensive academic curriculum, Middle School students flourish in the wide array of clubs, affinity groups, and extracurricular activities that offer kids opportunities to explore new interests, talents, and friendships, and to identify passions they’ll continue to cultivate in Upper School and beyond.
