Middle school program
Wildwood’s middle school program offers every student intellectual and creative opportunities in an active learning environment, where adolescent development is understood and fully supported. Wildwood’s three-year middle school program is comprised of Division One, a first-year program for 6th graders that builds on students’ elementary coursework and eases a positive transition to a new campus. Division Two for 7th and 8th graders provides a solid skill base and paves the way for academic success in the upper school years.
Core classes include humanities, mathematics, science, Spanish, a trimester arts program, and physical education. Every student is a member of an advisory group that meets daily and is guided by a teacher who serves as the student’s advisors, advocate, and contact between school and home. Middle school students can 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.
