Middle School | Grades 6-8

When Shore students transition from Lower School to Upper School, they begin to experience a different type of school community. With an integrated curriculum designed to enhance all subjects, students are actively involved in their own learning experience. The Upper School is a vibrant and supportive place where students continue to grow and find their voice. Teachers, who are also student advisors, encourage their students to reach beyond their limits. In their traditional subjects and independent studies, it is this journey that opens students’ eyes to a world of possibilities.

In addition to regular classes, Upper School students have the option to select art, music and theater classes based on personal interest, run for an elected position on the Student Senate, or try out for an a cappella group, such as Acafellas or Puellae Cantantes. Overnight trips are a highlight for each grade in Upper School. These weeklong trips build on community and strengthen the bonds between classmates and their teachers.

We invite you to check out our individual Grade 6-8 curriculum pages to see how Shore offers the foremost middle school learning experience available on the North Shore. The best is within reach!
