WELCOME TO MIDDLE SCHOOL

MS Principal

Our Middle School program is for girls from fifth through eighth grade, and provides an opportunity for your daughter to discover her own strengths and deal with her limitations positively in an unthreatening, nurturing and stimulating atmosphere. Pastoral care is important to us and in addition to developing academic skills, we also focus on the development of strong social and life skills. Change is an inevitable and sometimes difficult part of life at this age and developing the appropriate skills to deal with change is essential, particularly if you are part of an international school community. Our class sizes are small and the dedicated team of Middle School teachers pay close attention to each individual. They will support your daughter with the development of her independent study skills as well as those required to be an active participant in a group.

On her Middle School journey, your daughter will study a broad and academically rigorous curriculum, giving her a strong foundation for success in High School. She will also be exposed to a wide range of activities that will provide her with the chance to explore new interests and talents. The academic and extracurricular programs work together to produce confident young women, who love to learn, are socially aware, prepared to show leadership, and are tolerant yet questioning members of any community they may later belong to.

It is a true pleasure to work with the Middle School girls at this very dynamic stage of their development. I am confident your daughter will thrive in the unique experience that is Middle School at Sacred Heart.
