Middle School Grades 6 - 8
The middle school years are uniquely transformative for all young people. At Woodward, we are able to focus on the specific needs of girls, to provide a strong academic and personal foundation as they mature. Our middle school curriculum is designed to provide a solid academic base, and the learning tools and habits necessary for success in upper school and beyond. Study skills, time management, reading comprehension, and the math skills that must be mastered before upper school comprise the core of the curriculum. The curriculum is sequenced to build on skills as they are mastered. As students develop greater literacy and comprehension, and their thinking becomes more sophisticated, the curriculum and class expectations are appropriately broadened and deepened. Each year, middle school students participate in the following classes: English, Math, History, Science, Study Skills, Engineering, Art, Theatre, Music, Computer Science, Latin, Health and Wellness and Community Service.
