THE SCHOOL IS…
actively strives to be a diverse and inclusive community in its educational, admission, and employment practices. They do not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national or ethnic origin, age, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity and/or expression, disability, or any other characteristic. They seek candidates who demonstrate sensitivity, knowledge, and understanding of the diverse backgrounds of community members; have an ability to work flexibly, independently, and collaboratively in a fast-paced environment with individuals from a diverse set of backgrounds; and have a capacity to serve as a model of openness, generosity, and acceptance.
Their middle school is comprised of 727 students in grades seven through nine. The Science Department teaches a two-year physical science curriculum, consisting primarily of topics in chemistry and physics, to their 7th and 8th-grade students. Their 9th-grade students take one of two levels of high school biology (honors or regular). They pride themselves on the care afforded to students at an individual level, teacher collaboration on curriculum and laboratory set-up, and active participation by teachers in the greater school community.
