A key component of The Middle School Experience is the powerful relationship forged between teacher and student, as well as between peers. College-prep academics are balanced with a plethora of opportunities for social growth. Focused on critical thinking and creativity, our core Middle School curriculum emphasizes how to study, explore, research, and communicate effectively.
The Middle School provides authentic learning opportunities through hands-on explorations of topics in and out of the classroom.
Different from any Middle School around, our students engage in unique learning opportunities that are challenging, individualized, engaging, and student-directed. Students will spend their time at school wholly differently from anything they have encountered before. Core subjects taught include:
The Middle School Shield program helps students look regularly and carefully at how well they embrace and exhibit our school’s core values of scholarship, integrity, community, respect, and compassion. Coupled with fun social outings to places like Navy Pier, Six Flags Great America, movies, or Millennium Park, Roycemore offers an environment where students feel a sense of belonging, and are supported to push outside their comfort zone and try new things.
Our Advisory Program provides every student with a faculty advisor who serves as the primary point of contact for academic, social and emotional issues. The House system (think Harry Potter) groups students for fun, social competitions throughout the year striving to gain points to receive the Griffin Cup!
Our 1:1 Chromebook program supports both academic and social learning. Each student is given a carefully monitored Chromebook, which allows teachers to further differentiate curriculum and foster collaboration.
Our programs are what make Roycemore’s Middle School an amazing and engaging experience for each and every student. Read more in our Middle School Guide.
