Middle School

6th Grade to 8th Grade

ISB’s Middle School learning environment is designed to develop the whole student — both in and outside of the classroom.

ISB’s rigorous inquiry-based curriculum motivates students to be resourceful and imaginative in dealing with everyday challenges and finding creative solutions.

The Middle School years are full of changes for our students, both physical and emotional. In order to best support our students during these critical stages of their academic and personal growth, a faculty advisor guides each student during the Middle School years. Students meet with their advisors on a daily basis and discuss academic, social, and emotional development, as well as any issues the students wish to share.

The Middle School advisory program is designed and led by our Middle School Counselor, who offers added support to students, parents, and faculty. This support also includes a comprehensive program to assist students with high school applications and placement.

Through this robust, progressive educational program, ISB students become driven explorers and passionate communicators with skills that open up options and opportunities for high school and beyond.
