Grades 6-8

Middle school at St. Anselm fully prepares students to be lifelong learners and acquire the academic and social skills they will need in high school and later years.

In addition to a full curriculum, middle school students have a variety of special programs, including an advisory period, challenge groups, an elective program, advanced reading, split math classes, and drama. They are also able to participate in a spelling bee, outdoor education, and grade-appropriate field trips.

These years are a time where students work on developing executive functioning, academic, and social skills such as:

  • Setting goals and working towards achieving them
  • Learning to value their own and others’ ideas through individual and collaborative projects
  • Articulating ideas, thoughts, and feelings in writing, speech, drama, and music
  • Developing the ability to ask questions and respect divergent points of view
  • Solving problems and finding solutions as individuals and teams
  • Growing into moral, responsible, informed young adults
