Our middle school curriculum and programs are designed specifically to meet the unique emotional and social needs of young adolescents encouraging them to broaden their interests. . Their promising emotional lives thrive through positive kinds of expression, which include the study and writing of poetry, literature and biographies. They are encouraged to inquire, hypothesize and experiment through hands on science experiments as well as philosophize on the world around them. They experience a dynamic interplay of knowledge of self and the world as they engage in a wide variety of activity lessons such as dram, music, art and gym.

Opportunities for responsibility and for leadership are encouraged. Discussions of the responsibilities and the discipline needed for independence and for effective leadership take place throughout the intermediate years.

Keystone students gain a sense of heightened intellect and emotional stability before moving into high school.
