Welcome from Division Head Emily Dutton
I couldn’t be prouder of the compassionate, poised, intelligent, committed learners and thinkers who graduate from our Middle School. In grades 6-8, just as we do throughout our program, we carefully balance your child’s intellectual preparation with social and emotional development—because we’ve seen, year after year, how powerfully each side supports and enhances the other.
That combination proves even more essential during the transformative Middle School years, as your child grows into a teenager, and academic and personal choices take on greater significance. So we’ve created a comprehensive program that cultivates all the excitement, energy, and possibility of this pivotal time—fully preparing your child for high school while guiding your whole family, step-by-step, through the outplacement process.
Whether debating a political issue in the classroom, portraying a character on stage, running for Student Council, competing on a soccer team, or serving breakfast at a soup kitchen, Langley Middle Schoolers are laying the academic, social, and emotional foundation for their future. Guided and inspired by award-winning faculty members who are experts in early adolescence, students stretch and grow beyond their highest expectations. They do original research, enhancing their critical and analytical abilities; create real-world, technologically sophisticated solutions through design thinking; and deepen their collaborative skills with group projects. They gain confidence and maturity through service, build resilience by experiencing failure as well as success, and learn the value of friendship and sportsmanship—and the lesson that you don’t always need to be out in front to lead.
I hope you’ll want to learn more about our program. You can review the essential components, listed below, and then link to more information about our campus life. I also warmly invite you to visit our new state-of-the-art Middle School building and—even better—meet our enthusiastic and talented students, teachers, and staff members.
I look forward to sharing our school with you.
