The middle school years are a time of great change as students make the transition from childhood to adolescence. Ensuring that their school life is vibrant, imaginative, and supportive is key to helping them grow and learn.
Students continue to build on their scholastic achievements from lower school and develop their problem-solving skills. Their sense of who they are as human beings, as Americans, and as Jews provides them with the strength and courage to explore and to question.
Our interdisciplinary curriculum weaves together an awareness of past and present connections and future possibilities. In addition, a broad choice of electives gives them the opportunity to try new activities such as small-sided sports, yearbook, gardening, and tinkering, as well as to participate in performance band, theater, and unique art projects.
The result? Students who not only learn skills, but also apply them to academics, life, and their roles in the world at large. This is part of what makes The Brandeis School of San Francisco such a special school.
