The basic organizational structure in the seventh and eighth grades is the team. The team provides a comfortable transition between the 5/6 homerooms and the Upper School advisory system. There are three teams of approximately sixty-four students and six advisors in the Middle School, and they are named Land, Sea, and Sky in the spirit of our green building.
English and Social Studies classes take place in the team, and the team plans a number of activities together over the course of the year.
Each advisor in the team is responsible for about ten - eleven students. This relationship between advisor and advisee provides the first line of communication between the school and the home.
