Middle School

Middle School offers an advanced curriculum with an emphasis on developing students’ social and emotional intelligence. This is achieved through a strong emphasis on the development of study skills, self-advocacy, and personal development, preparing students for opportunities in the Upper School and beyond.

Middle School is a time when students explore and try new things. Pine Crest creates an environment where they feel welcomed and encouraged to try new activities in a structured environment where they still are exposed to the core academic values that ground Pine Crest as a traditional and independent school.
