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.

Middle school academics are increasingly rigorous as students are challenged in an interdisciplinary humanities class—illuminating social studies and language arts—as well as mathematics, science, and Spanish. Building on the critical-thinking skills developed in elementary school, Wildwood middle school students cultivate an ability to examine and understand complex concepts, investigate and build evidence, and present findings. Technology and library proficiencies mature with instruction using a range of software and emerging tech tools. Classes in the visual and performing arts give every student opportunities to learn and hone technique and experiment widely in the arts and music. P.E. courses help every student sharpen their skills and understand the benefits of physical education and health.

Middle school enrichment opportunities include environmental and intergenerational community involvement, while Wildwood’s multicultural programming explores positive identity development for every student through a range of classroom experiences, events, and clubs. Academic support is provided in advisory where teacher/mentors and a small group of students offer adult and peer-to-peer relationships. The Habits of Mind and Heart are fluidly represented through the curriculum, providing a set of values and skills that will serve students throughout their studies and in life.

Middle School Structure

Wildwood’s three-year 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 into middle school. 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.
