Middle School (5-8)
The Middle School at Stuart is a vibrant and energetic learning community, where each of our girls discovers who she is, who she wants to become, and how she will make a positive difference in the world. Our girls are challenged and nurtured as they mature spiritually, intellectually, emotionally, and physically in a caring community where the faculty knows each individual girl.
A spirited faculty and student body energize one another. Our challenging and innovative curriculum is designed to take advantage of the way girls learn in the STEM fields of science, technology, engineering, and math—as well as the arts, humanities and athletics. Every facet of the School is designed with what is best for the girls in mind.
Our superb faculty utilizes the most up-to-day technology through our 1:1 iPad Program, inspiring girls to be inquisitive, creative, collaborative, resourceful, and empowered learners. Students connect to both their local and global communities, developing consciousness and commitment for social justice through service learning. Whether she leads, competes, or creates on the field, in the lab, or on the stage, we believe there is something special here for every girl. Each Middle School girl takes financial literacy, leadership, and digital literacy courses, which provide her key skills often not learned in other classes.
A rich advisory program, an active student government, extensive club offerings, strong athletic, drama and fine arts programs, and an 8th grade domestic exchange program to Sacred Heart schools from San Francisco to New Orleans provide our girls a wide range of opportunities to explore their interests, develop their talents, and exercise leadership.
The Middle School years are a time of tremendous change and growth, and our advisory and health curricula are designed with the needs and experiences of girls in mind. The all-girl atmosphere provides students with an environment where they feel comfortable, free to express themselves and able to focus on the tasks at hand. Stuart is a place where girls become confident, intelligent, and articulate leaders for positive change in our world.
The Middle School is a place of happy, excited girls who work together to excel in all that they do. We hope you will visit us and experience the enthusiasm, energy, and excitement for yourself.
