Fostering Student Independence
Students learn responsibility and cultivate self-discipline as they become increasingly more independent in preparation for upper school. In middle school, students will participate in an advisory curriculum that equips them with leadership skills, fosters their character development and informs them on a variety of topics they may not be exposed to in their core classes such as digital citizenship, communication skills and study habits. The classroom experience is critical. At SBS, middle school teachers create a safe and welcoming environment where students are free to question, and are also challenged to achieve their best. Students thrive in a caring environment with high expectations.
