Start With Strengths

Sterne's Program for Grades 6-8

Middle School is a time when students begin deeper exploration of all academic areas and discover who they are as learners. Sterne’s Middle School offers a standards-based high school preparatory program with an emphasis on developing passions and strengths. Our approach takes into account the whole student: their unique learning profile, their strengths and interests, areas where they may need more focused attention. We maintain the flexibility to group students according to the type of learning support they require, so we can engage students at their instructional level in each discipline and offer integrated support whenever needed.
