In the Bryn Mawr Middle School, understanding and discussing our community are paramount. Students are encouraged to take part in conversations about their community – at Bryn Mawr and beyond – as well as to give back through service. In addition to our unique, capstone Voice and Vision Seminar in which students create art, writing, service, or education for an authentic audience, we offer a variety of student organizations and activities to promote community engagement, understanding, and justice.
Community Service Learning (CSL)
We strongly believe that in addition to having a joyful and challenging academic experience every girl should be an active, engaged member of the broader community. Community Service Learning (CSL) is an important component of the Bryn Mawr Middle School experience. CSL projects are carried out by grade levels and are designed to suit the social and emotional development of each age group. In addition to these grade-level opportunities, there are a number of additional ways in which a student can volunteer her time. The Little School Club allows students to volunteer their time with young students at the Bryn Mawr Little School.. Many students choose to join the CSL club which provides them with the chance to shape and promote CSL’s goals within the Middle School community.

Making Our School an Inclusive Community (MOSAIC)
The Bryn Mawr School is committed to building and sustaining a diverse community that honors the dignity and rights of all people. Making Our School An Inclusive Community (MOSAIC) is a student and faculty group that co-creates programming that educates and promotes equity and inclusion within the division. MOSAIC also helps promote policies and processes that reflect the school’s equity, inclusion, and justice goals. In addition to MOSAIC, Middle School students can participate in affinity and identity groups, Lean In Lunches to discuss current events, holiday convocations, and other forums that allow for student engagement with topics of diversity, equity and inclusion. Through MOSAIC our middle school is a brave space where our differences are celebrated and our common humanity and Mawrtian community unites us.
Model United Nations
Through our Model UN Club and annual trip to William and Mary, students are challenged to make speeches, negotiate with others, and find solutions to global problems. Students may choose to be a part of this club and trip in their 7th and 8th grade years.
Social Events with Area Schools
From mixers, movie and game nights, scavenger hunts, and service projects our students can choose to engage with students at our peer schools in a variety of ways. We also engage in book clubs, field days, and other events with our tri-school partners Roland Park Country School and Gilman School.
