The sincere love of learning that The Birch Wathen Lenox School strives to instill early in every student's education continues to be of vital importance in Middle School. Students attend sophisticated core classes and continue a wide range of studies, as the academic demands and expectations increase each year.
Dedicated teachers and advisors help students navigate the shift to having teachers in separate academic disciplines within an administrative "house" system, trimester grading periods, and an increased emphasis on becoming an independent learner. Advisory comments, parent conferences, and computerized communications serve to ensure a continuous flow of information between teachers, students and their families.
Middle school faculty offer a wide variety of activities that speak to our students interests, talents, and passions.
Middle School extracurricular activities take place primarily during the school day during our Activities period. Most Activities programs change each trimester, giving students greater opportunity for exploration.
Some examples of recent Activities include: Trivia, Storytelling, Anime, Improv (Theater), Chess, House Committee, Origami, Speedcubing, Journal Sketching, House Committee, Study Hall, Student Council, Peer Relations Program, House Initiative, and Rainbow Society.
