It is possible to LOVE middle school. We see it every day as our middle years students navigate the waters of adolescence in a school community where they are supported, nurtured, challenged, and loved.
High Meadows’ middle school program provides an environment in which students are encouraged to take risks, try new things, learn through experience, and to embrace a growth mindset. Within an academic program which is both rich and rigorous, our teachers focus on authentic learning, reflection, and growth. Our graduates not only excel in high school- they carry with them an appreciation for their own talents, gifts, and abilities and a commitment to making a positive impact in the world around them.
Preparation for High School and Beyond
Students in Sixth, Seventh, and Eighth grade are ready for deeper levels of critical and interpretive thinking and expression. The High Meadows middle school program provides students a robust academic foundation in the core subject areas of English, Social Studies, Mathematics, Spanish and Science. While at High Meadows, students can earn high school credits in math and Spanish, and most graduates enroll in advanced and honors classes throughout their high school career. High Meadows graduates are known to be exceptional critical thinkers, writers, innovators, communicators, and self-advocates. They go on to thrive academically and socially at a wide range of public and private high schools, and later, colleges and universities.

A Community of Learners
Our middle school classrooms are lively—filled with conversation, collaboration, and creativity. Teachers value students as individuals, nurturing self-awareness and empowering them to take responsibility for their learning. As students engage in increasingly abstract and sophisticated knowledge development, they expand their ability to manipulate and connect ideas and apply knowledge to solve problems and critically evaluate issues. Students create lasting relationships, developing leadership and cooperative skills through a variety of community service projects, class trips and other programs that bring them together for a common goal.
Whole Student Focus
Children thrive most when their physical, social, emotional and academic needs are all considered and honored in their daily school experience. Adolescents are no exception! High Meadows middle school students are respected as learners, community members, and individuals capable of great things. Their development and growth are supported by intentional integration of physical movement, time for building social connections, counseling support, and mindfulness practices alongside academic work. High Meadows teachers utilize Positive Discipline principles to assist with classroom management and individual growth, with focus placed on problem solving and self-awareness rather than punishment and rewards.
Why Middle School Matters

This episode features Matt Nuttall (Middle Years Principal) and Anne Lovatt (Middle Years Social Studies teacher and HMS Alumna Class of 1996) who share their reflections and knowledge on adolescence, teaching and learning in our Middle Years program, and what we do here at High Meadows to make this fascinating and complicated time in the lives of our students one full of joy and growth.
“I started at High Meadows in 6th grade and remember feeling nervous about being new. The students were so welcoming and I love how fun and interactive the classes are. My favorite classes are my sculpture mini-course and social studies.”

Throughout the year, our students enroll in a variety of electives called mini-courses. These classes offer a wider variety of opportunities to be introduced to something new or pursue a passion. A few classes are required of all middle school students to ensure they acquire necessary skills and exposure to technology, visual arts, performing arts, and physical education; others provide opportunities to further develop an area of interest or encounter new subjects.
Course offerings vary from year-to-year, but the mainstays include debate, music/band ensembles, technology, life skills, theatre and production programs, philosophy, fine arts, product design, outdoor living skills, yearbook staff, etc. During the course of a school year, middle school students complete the equivalent of 12 mini-courses.
