Equal emphasis is placed on language, math, science, humanities classes, and athletics. Girls thrive on interactive assignments rather than passive listening. Stone Ridge utilizes technology throughout the curriculum, giving the girls a strong base of tablet and computer skills. Classroom environments allow the girls to speak up and get to know one another as well as their teachers. Positive female role models help girls at this adolescent age maintain a healthy self-image and have the courage to try new interests. Stone Ridge girls become instilled with a passion, a focus, and a curiosity for learning and for life.
Advisory and study hall programs in the Middle School facilitate interaction among the students and faculty. Each year, girls in Grades 5-8 are placed in an advisory group of nine to eleven students and one faculty member, meeting often to discuss school issues, develop peer relationships, build community, and plan activities. Advisors also meet with advisees on a one-to-one basis to discuss academic progress and social issues.
Middle School is a great time of growth for your daughter and we look forward to challenging their curious mind.
