Upper Elementary & Middle School

Sterne Upper Elementary & Middle School lays a solid foundation for growth at a critical phase in the student’s development.

In the upper elementary & middle school, we work individually with each student to strengthen critical foundational skills in math and language arts as needed, while instilling the values of time management, step-by-step project management, and personal organization. The program is designed to prepare students for high school – academically, emotionally and socially.

Students are grouped according to academic needs, based on strengths and opportunities for growth in specific subjects. They may be grouped with different students for different subjects.

Sterne students develop fluency with computers and tablet technology. Assistive programs such as Dragon, ReadingPlus, Voice Dream Reader (coupled with Bookshare) are available and prescribed when we believe they would benefit a student’s learning style.

The academic program is rounded out with:

  • Courses and after-school activities in visual, performing, musical and multi-media arts.
  • Daily recess and physical education.
  • Extensive clubs and after-school sport teams
