Middle school is such a transformative and often challenging time in children's lives. One thing I love about QSI is that the class sizes are small and classmates really begin to seem like a family - sometimes we fight but, ultimately, everyone is accepted and supported for the person they are. It can be magical to see children from all different backgrounds laughing and learning together.
Academically, middle school is a time of building upon the solid foundation of elementary school but adding significant academic rigor in preparation for the challenges of secondary school. Students collaborate to explore new ideas and are challenged to think critically and creatively to solve problems.
