Middle School

The Evansville Day School's philosophy regarding Middle School is laying the foundation for confident critical thinkers who embrace self-discovery. This period in a student's life is defined by tremendous growth physically, academically and relationally. Acknowledging this stage of growth we see tremendous value with the involvement of our faculty as both teacher and advisor. The Middle School educators bring years of teaching experience to the classroom and are committed to strengthening and building core academic skills. Equally important though is their commitment to create programs that cultivate and develop appropriate levels of independence, personal responsibility within a community of mutual respect.

Some of the exciting Middle School activities and experiences include:

  • Accelerated curriculum incorporating features to prepare students to become leaders
