An intensive and tailored curriculum serves the particular needs of students in Grades Six, Seven and Eight, making the Middle School program at BWL an ideal environment for young people. 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.
