Middle School

Over the course of their middle school years at Wilkinson School, students will practice skills and interact with content that will help to mold their identity.

As students are transitioning out of their early years, helping them place the building blocks of who they will be as an adult is critical.

As students are undergoing this profound intellectual and emotional transition, building a curriculum that meets their needs is essential. 

Over the course of their middle school years at Wilkinson School, students will practice skills and interact with content that will help to mold their identity.  Depth of study is extremely important here.  This depth is achieved through a close working relationship with teachers, ample time provided for one-on-one support, consistent educational opportunities beyond the classroom, and connecting topics with the real world, telling the stories of the characters they meet along the way, whether those characters be revolutionaries, statisticians, inventors - historical and intellectual pioneers.

Our middle school curriculum allows students to continue developing their voice, social-emotional maturity, and self-confidence in a supportive and inclusive environment.

With a curriculum that is largely built around ideas and themes of the yearly Intensive Studies Trips, the students gain knowledge and abilities while diving deeply into history, focusing on the important characters and the values that drove them to affect change in the world.  By the time they deliver their graduation speeches, Wilkinson middle school students achieve a unique sense of self, show a strong academic base), joyfully reference a vast array of real-life experiences, and proudly display the results of spending one's formative years in a little cottage by the sea.

As students are transitioning out of their early years, helping them place the building blocks of who they will be as an adult is critical.

Our graduates attend a variety of local independent high schools and public high schools. Virtually all high schools report that they find Wilkinson School alumni to be intellectually curious, intrinsically motivated, and community minded.
