Bentley Middle School - Grades 6-7-8
Bentley Middle School builds upon the foundation established in the Lower School by continuing to promote the academic, social, and emotional development of its students. Students move from a single-teacher classroom structure to a multi-classroom, multi-teacher model. Navigating this period of rapid personal and physical development, students acquire learning skills to progress from concrete to analytical thinkers.
The Bentley faculty encourage students to think critically and develop excellent communication skills with hands-on projects, open-ended questions, and challenging problems. Students acquire study skills in every class. They master mathematics and learn to think scientifically. Students become proficient in world languages, develop strategies for physical and emotional health, work collaboratively with peers, and can express themselves intelligently and confidently in the arts.
in order for students to become engaged citizens of the world, they are presented with expansive opportunities in all academic areas and are offered a choice of electives in the arts, debating, engineering, athletics, and academic preparation. Bentley students become enthusiastic learners who live an intellectual life each day. They leave eighth grade confident and well-versed in fundamental areas to meet Bentley's rigorous and specialized Upper School program.
