Middle School (Grades 5-8)

Independence – and the responsibility that comes with it – evolves during grades 5-8. Academics become increasingly challenging as Middle School progresses; with the help of supportive teachers, students are well prepared to take on age-appropriate rigors.

Maret's Middle School engages the natural enthusiasm, energy, and curiosity of adolescence with a curriculum that is challenging yet exciting. Our program is designed to create confident thinkers, healthy athletes, innovative artists, thoughtful friends, and engaged community members.

Athletics & Physical Education

Middle School physical education builds on the fitness skills acquired in Lower School. Interscholastic team sports are introduced in grades 7 and 8. Embedded in the school day, these non-elimination sports develop the physical, emotional, and cognitive skills that enable students to become effective team members. All team members are guaranteed playing time.
