Welcome to the Middle School
Middle School is one of the most important periods in a person’s life. Young adolescents go through rapid and profound changes during the years 10-14 and our Middle School program supports the students’ academic, social, and emotional needs during this very intense period of change and development.
Our program is designed so that students feel comfortable pursuing academic opportunities and exploring who they are as individuals and as members of a community. We aim to create a school climate that is safe, trusting, inviting, and caring by focussing on the ACS Core Values of Respect, Responsibility, Integrity, Compassion, Open-Mindedness, Creativity, and Advocacy. This environment promotes a sense of community and encourages learning.
Our curriculum is challenging, integrated, and exploratory with varied teaching and learning approaches within and across different subject areas. The middle school child is drawn to learning by a caring, understanding and supportive faculty who understand and appreciate the unique developmental stage of the middle school child.
