Middle School

Welcome to the Middle School. Except during infancy, there is no stage of life when young people go through more changes in such a short time - and in every aspect of their lives. It is often bewildering to them and to their parents!

So here at The Savannah Country Day, we offer opportunities for our middle schoolers to grow confidently as individuals, to take risks, to solve problems, to make a difference, and to have fun in a safe,supportive environment. Our faculty, exceptionally friendly and competent,understand that interacting with such curious, energetic students requires patience, humor, and sensitivity. Working in partnership with parents to see that every student experiences success is a top priority.

I invite you to browse our web pages and get to know us better. Middle School is an exciting place to be!

Student-Led Dissection Lab
Seventh-grader Vik Manocha recently led an extension learning class on the eye – a cow eye! After a recent trip to the Chicago Exploratorium, this eager seventh-grader asked if he could lead an after school lab that would allow them to dissect a cow eye.  Mr. Swanson’s science students were so enthusiastic after their previous dissection  that they happily said yes! Manocha created a text to share with his eager classmates that guided them through the process, explaining each step of the way. It was a great way for Hornets to show off their leadership skills and take charge of their curiosity!

Sixth-Graders Document Weather Microclimates
The temperature is rising in sixth-grade science and these Hornets are on it! Students in Mr. Wiley’s class are learning to document measurement data by creating weather climates in their own beakers! By controlling the microenvironments, students are able to manipulate and adjust factors to create a variety of weather patterns.

Spanish Students Apply Language Skills Into Film
Using the language skills they have learned from the past quarter, these Middle School Spanish students are putting their knowledge to use by creating an original skit and recording it on their iPads! These Hornets were challenged to include--entirely in Spanish-- how to order in a restaurant, book a hotel, ask for personal information and talk about hobbies or activities they enjoy on the weekends. ¡Qué manera de poner habilidades a prueba!
