We believe that Middle Schoolers are magical. Their independence, clarity of thought, and willingness to explore new ideas inspire us to infuse learning with meaning. The energy is electric and wires this division for exploration and impact.
Students begin their Middle School journey with a 6th Grade Experience that’s designed to lay the foundation for academic success and help them get to know their teachers and the many new-to-Lovett students who join our community. In addition to their academic study of math, science, language arts, and social studies, students in 6th Grade take courses in art, religion, physical education, and world languages.
In their second year of Middle School, 7th Grade students gain more opportunity to shape their academic and extracurricular experiences. They choose elective courses in the arts and technology and can begin or continue study in either Spanish, French, Latin, or Chinese. Students can also participate in Lovett athletic teams with at least one no-cut sport in each athletic season.
In their final Middle School year, 8th Grade students are challenged to stretch their creative and critical thinking skills through passion-driven projects, leadership training, and service learning experiences. These classes and activities encourage students in their path of self-discovery in preparation for their Lovett Upper School experience.
