There is an exuberance running through the Middle School that can be enjoyed at every turn. In classrooms, teachers mentor the girls with care and expertise; in and out of class, our girls joyfully help each other, and, at all times, the zigs and zags of adolescence are embraced.
At Agnes Irwin, we pride ourselves on recognizing the beauty of the middle school years. As our girls move from fifth to eighth grade, they discover their potential, begin to find their voice, and move with confidence in the direction of their dreams. In collaboration with the Center for Advancement for Girls, we seek ways to impact the girls so they, in turn, can start to think about the impact they will make in the world.
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.
