Designed to stimulate the intellectual and social capacities of our fifth through eighth graders, the Middle School building opened in January 2005. This exciting building is part of the academic quadrangle formed by Morris Hall, our science and technology center, and it gives our middle schoolers the space they need in order for their intellect, energy, enthusiasm, and creativity to flourish.
The Building Features:
- Fifteen spacious classrooms just for middle school use
- Great Hall that accommodates the entire Middle School for morning meeting, assemblies, and special events
- Faculty and administrative office spaces
- Common areas on each floor for informal meetings and socializing
- Art classroom and kiln
- Music classroom with digital keyboards and laptop computers
- Convenient access to computers for all students, including a mobile computer lab
- An elevator
- Ample locker space
Together, these features concentrate most of the Middle School's academic activities in one building, minimizing time spent passing from class to class and promoting an interactive and cohesive community. At the same time, middle schoolers are part of the larger Masters School community when they move to Strayer Hall for physical education classes and music lessons, to Morris Hall for seventh and eighth grade science, to have lunch in the Cameron Mann Dining Hall, or to attend special performances in the Claudia Boettcher Theatre. The Middle School building serves as the home base for every middle schooler's life on campus.
