Academics
Middle School

Welcome to the Middle School

The middle school years are a time of very active learning about oneself, relationships with others, and the larger world. Our program is designed to support and stretch our students at this crucial stage of their academic, physical and social development.
Bryn Mawr teachers create classrooms that are safe spaces for students to take academic risks and think critically about the world. Students tackle topics as diverse as sustainable development, Shakespeare, and algebraic functions, while teachers emphasize student skills – showing girls not only how to learn, but also how to be their own best advocates.

We celebrate the fact that each girl will change and develop significantly over the course of these three years, and that the pace of growth will be different for each of them. Throughout these transformative years, we are committed to making sure that there is plenty of learning and laughter. Come see us in action!
