Community in the Middle School

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 opportunities to engage through curriculum, we offer a variety of student organizations and activities to promote community involvement and diversity education.

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.

CSL Projects:
  • Keswick Club
  • Playing with the Little School Club
  • Trail clean up with Project Clean Stream
  • Saturday volunteering at First Fruits Farm and Baltimore Hunger Project
  • Bay grass planting with the National Aquarium
  • Other grade level projects

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 promoting policies and processes that reflect the school’s equity, inclusion, and justice goals.In addition to MOSAIC, Middle School students can participate in Affinity groups, Lean In Lunches to discuss current events, and other forums that allow for student engagement with topics of diversity, equity and inclusion. The goals of MOSAIC are to create a safe space for all students in our Middle School and to celebrate the diversity of our school community.
