Our Vision for Middle School Education
At Poly, we see Middle School as a time for young people to come to know themselves as students and members of a learning community. Poly Prep's academic program provides a broad base of fundamental skills that foster intellectual curiosity and lay the foundation for more advanced study in the Upper School.
Students emerge from our Middle School as confident, competent learners who are comfortable working in a variety of settings and subject areas. The critical values we stress in Middle School include self-reliance and cooperation, individual and group problem-solving, development of effective study habits, respect for individual differences, contribution to the community, and the pursuit of excellence.
Poly Fosters Character & Service
Service Learning is an essential component of the Middle School program, with students planning and leading community service efforts through the advisory program. Each student is assigned an advisor who is an essential point of contact for Middle School parents, along with two Form Deans who work with each grade
Learning Beyond the Classroom
Middle School students also have the opportunity to participate in Poly’s extensive after-school program of activities, including robotics, Tower Times (newspaper), Polymorphous (arts journal), Math Olympiad, Green Team (environmental club), chess club, sports, instrumental music lessons, and six Middle school performing arts groups.
