The Middle School at Stuart
The Middle School years are a time for Stuart girls to discover who they are, what they want to become and how they want to make a difference in the world. We challenge and support our girls through this process as they mature spiritually, intellectually, emotionally and physically.
Our innovative curriculum and 1:1 iPad program provide students with essential 21st century skills, including effective communication, critical thinking and problem solving. Outside the classroom, girls develop an awareness and commitment to social justice through discussion and service to others.
A comprehensive advisory program, extensive club offerings, strong athletics and an exchange student opportunity in eighth grade allow our girls to build confidence in their abilities to lead, compete and collaborate.
In seventh grade science, students are testing their ability to use the scientific method and experimentation by attempting to answer the following question: What food do Madagascar hissing cockroaches prefer? The students presented roaches with three different foods in a "roach arena" while students log how much time each insect spends with each type of food: dog food, orange and chocolate.

Casting is now complete for the Eighth Grade Musical, Shrek The Musical, Jr. and the cast and crew are excited to begin their ultimate project-based learning signature event. Throughout the process, the students will be using critical thinking to solve problems, working collaboratively, creating characters, learning technical skills, and having fun as they work through the script. Don't miss the Eighth Grade Musical, Friday, November 17 at 7:00 PM.
The Middle School Tartans field hockey team could not have asked for a better day to open their season. With Homecoming festivities going on, the Tartans team fought a hard battle against rivals PDS.

Later on in the half, eighth grader Caroline Johnson was able to react quickly to a deflected ball and she knocked it in for the second goal of the game. The Tartans ended up winning their season opener 2–1. Way to go team! Come out on Tuesday, September 19 to cheer on the Tartans in their next home game at 4:00 PM on the grass fields!
