Infectious energy. That’s what anyone who walks the Middle School halls can feel. It’s the joyous buzz of girls ready to take on an exciting and transformative time of cognitive and social growth. And it is what makes these years at Agnes Irwin so special.
Middle School is marked by phenomenal change – it is a time of hope, of potential, of possibilities and dreams. Throughout this period of personal discovery, we provide an environment in which this growth feels exhilarating and at the same time manageable. These are the years when girls begin to figure out who they are and who they want to be; it is a time when they contemplate the ways in which they will choose to impact their world. We have the privilege to witness and guide their transition from little girl to young woman.
Coursework is sequentially skill-oriented. Concepts are introduced in fifth grade, then refined and advanced throughout sixth, seventh and eighth grades, building a solid foundation that prepares our girls for high school. Interdisciplinary teaching helps bring material to life, leading to more meaningful learning experiences. Collaborative classroom environments help create bonds among students as they explore new ways of problem-solving and learning, and our dynamic curriculum is designed specifically for girls at this pivotal time in their growth.
