Middle School

The STMA Middle School prepares students for success in the Upper School and beyond by teaching them to think critically and creatively and to write clearly and speak articulately to express these thoughts.  We cultivate habits of close and careful reading, attentive and active listening, and reflective and respectful questioning.  Our goal is to instill a joy of learning beginning in Middle School that will carry through to their Upper School studies.  We aim that all students will become lifelong learners who are intellectually curious and have the tools and disciplines necessary to learn and perform well regardless of the subject matter or setting.
