Welcome to the Middle School
Middle School educators recognize the years of growth and discovery that happen here. It is a unique transitional period from the creativity and imagination of childhood to the abstract thinking and global perspectives of young adulthood.
Rowland Hall's Middle School embraces middle level development by creating a program that fosters independence, critical thinking, and a love of learning. We accomplish this with a community of teachers who collaborate with each other, are constantly studying current research on best practices in teaching and learning, and understand that the most critical component to middle school learning is the student-teacher relationship.
Our Middle School finds its roots in the fundamentals of progressive education with a learn-by-doing approach. Students are consistently out of their seats, grappling with problems together, and connecting their learning to the real world. Here we see our primary duty as preparing our students not solely for high school, but for life after Rowland Hall and the diverse, complex world that awaits them.
