From fifth through eighth grades, students in the Middle School engage in small group discussions that help them learn to share original ideas respectfully and confidently with classmates. In the Upper School at The Masters School, the emphasis on discussion accelerates. With that in mind, eighth grade Humanities class discussions take place at Harkness tables just like those that the Upper School uses in all of its classes and labs.
Upper School Students Look Back
In Middle School I learned to budget my time better. I’m more organized now, I have better study skills, and I know how to handle big projects."
—James, Tenth Grade
I became a better writer and listener. I am much better at speaking up when I have something to say. The things I learned in the Middle School will stay with me and I will use them in the years to come."
—Sara, Tenth Grade
On my first day I didn’t know what to expect, but the second I walked through the door, I was greeted by people I felt truly wanted me there. Both my classmates and the faculty helped me become the person I wanted to be."
