Middle School: Grades Five through Eight
St. Martin’s Middle School offers a challenging, well-rounded curriculum that meets the intellectual, social, emotional, and spiritual needs of young adolescents.

Faculty develop cognitive reasoning skills, social skills, and growth mindsets in their students through inquiry,
experimentation, and service. The Middle School curriculum encourages students to explore various sports, languages, service opportunities, and clubs as they prepare for the choices available to them in Upper School.

In addition to academic core classes of English, social studies, science, math, and global language, courses are offered in fine arts, study skills, and religion. Design thinking projects are embedded across the curriculum. Students also participate in passion-based Capstone projects. The Middle School community gathers every week for Chapel services.

Grade-specific retreats and trips provide opportunities for deepening social and community relationships as students grow and share new experiences. Students advance to the Upper School self-assured and prepared as a result of the lessons learned in Middle School.
