Welcome from Division Head Emily Dutton
I couldn’t be prouder of the compassionate, poised, and confident learners and thinkers who graduate from our Middle School. In grades 6-8, just as we do throughout our program, we carefully balance each student’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 students grow into teenagers, 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 our students for high school while guiding each family, step-by-step, through the high school placement process.
Whether debating in the classroom, portraying a character on stage, running for Student Council, competing on a soccer team, or taking part in a service learning project, Langley Middle Schoolers are laying the academic, social, and emotional foundation for their future. Guided and inspired by 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.
I hope you’ll take time to discover more about our program below.
