Learning in the Middle School
Self-discovery is an essential component of Park Tudor's independent middle school.
Anchored by a strong advisory program that teaches character development, the private Middle School curriculum at Park Tudor fosters a period of rapid personal and academic growth during the young adolescent years.
Crafted with a liberal arts focus, the Middle School curriculum prepares students in grades 6-8 for the challenges of the Upper School and allows them to begin taking electives in fine arts, world languages, computer science, and robotics. You can exercise your creativity in art, music and theatre classes, and exercise your body in health and wellness classes and sports teams.
The Middle School Advisory program builds on students' character growth and development with interactive activities and discussions. Faculty advisors and students work together to form a fun, educational experience founded on Park Tudor's core values. Some topics include empathy, respect, conflict resolution, Internet conduct, honesty, healthy relationships, goal setting and leadership.
When we focus on instilling habits of good character in our students, we truly offer them the keys to success. We often tell our students it is not enough to be smart and earn good grades. We must work on who we are and what we stand for as well.
~ Erin Nixon, Middle School Counselor
