Middle School | Grades 6-8

Welcome to the Middle School

Society sometimes mistakenly tells us that middle school is a place to endure, a place to tread water until high school starts. We couldn’t disagree more: Our Middle School is not a stopping point between here and there — nor a place where girls need to walk softly and try their best to disappear. It’s a stimulating, supportive space where young girls step to the front of the room, dance to center stage, run furiously to the goal line and stand out in the crowd — uniquely happy just being themselves.

The Middle School years are a time of rapid development physically, emotionally, and intellectually. At Kent Place, we strive to encourage girls’ growth by providing support for good decision making and positive risk-taking, while challenging them to stretch beyond their comfort zone.

Our faculty understand middle school girls and know how to help them rise to the next steep academic challenge, while also learning about identity, empathy, ethics, change, and resilience. -Jane Phillips
