Middle School

The Marylhurst middle years provide children time to grow up, space to play, and rigorous inquiry-based instruction that challenges each student intellectually and socially. Curriculum in the 6th, 7th and 8th grade builds on the progressive philosophy tenants established in our primary programs: yearlong thematic studies, student directed learning, and mentor-apprentice relationships provide opportunities for leadership and support the quest of individual passions. We believe that adolescents are capable of abstract critical reasoning; that mistakes, recoveries and repairs foster healthy brain development and self-confidence; and that a balance of concrete skills and higher order thinking are prerequisites for lifelong learning.
