Middle school program
Wildwood School's middle school program advances students' academic, social, and emotional growth. Small class sizes create a comfortable, safe space where students can explore their own identities and try out ideas. Teachers and staff serve as role models, and advisors provide a critical link between school and home.
Core classes include humanities, mathematics, science, Spanish, a three-part arts program, and physical education. In addition to academics, students learn good study skills and time management techniques. They participate in a full range of clubs, drama and music performances, visual arts exhibitions, and athletic teams.
Middle school structure
Wildwood's middle school program is made up of two divisions. Division One is a one-year program for 6th graders that builds on students' elementary coursework and supports a positive transition to a new campus. Division Two is a two-year program for 7th and 8th graders that provides a solid skill base to pave the way for academic success in the upper school years.
Division Two students participate in mixed 7th and 8th grade classes for advisory, humanities, and the arts to encourage a culture that allows students to be mentors, leaders, and learners. Students are assessed based on rubrics and their adherence to Wildwood's Habits of Mind and Heart.
