Middle School (Grades 6-8)

Middle School Academic Overview

Welcome to the Middle School, where students are engaged in active, hands-on learning, both inside and outside the classroom.

Rigorous Academics

The academic core of the Middle School program is rigorous in content, adaptable to the needs of students, and wide in its breadth of offerings. Students in the Middle School are required to take a minimum of five academic classes, including courses in English, math, history, science, and a world language, either Spanish or French. In the 7th Grade, many students add Latin to their course of study. As the leading outdoor middle school in New Haven County, our students are engaged in a variety of additional programs and subjects, including STEAM, Outdoor Education, leadership opportunities, physical education, art, instrumental and choral music, drama, service learning, and public speaking.

Growth Opportunities

At The Country School, Middle School students have countless opportunities to develop and pursue their interests through clubs and other extracurricular offerings. In addition to our interscholastic athletic teams, which typically engage 90 percent of our students each year, and our Chorus, Chamber Chorus, Band, and Middle School musical, we offer the following teams and clubs: Robotics, Model UN, and TEDx. In recent years students have opted to participate in a statewide Diversity Leadership Conference, and choral and instrumental music recitals requiring auditions.
