Two talented Stuart Middle Schoolers, Nana Larbi and Emma Tian, participated in this year's "ListenUp!" program. Sponsored by the Princeton Symphony Orchestra, 'ListenUp!" encourages creativity through active listening.
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.
Stuart fifth graders recently culminated their studies of ancient Greece in History and English classes with a special event on Mount Olympus (SLT). Based on their reading of D'Aulaires' Book of Greek Myths, the girls presented themselves as their favorite Greek god or goddess, complete with costumes and props
Recently, all eighth grade classes completed a printmaking project that began with a morning spent outside to sketch the landscape around Stuart. The girls then carved their drawings into blocks of linoleum and created black and white prints using an etching printing press.
In the seventh grade music class, students learn basic guitar skills, including tuning and chord formation. Each student chooses a song to play and sing as her culminating activity for the trimester. On Monday morning, Aine, Tess, Eva, Ellie P, and Ellie E demonstrated their final songs for the Middle School.
