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!

Pun Sculptures In Middle School Art
These Hornets are boldly going where no Middle School art class has gone before-designing paper-mache pun sculptures. Working in pairs, each team was challenged with the task of designing and sculpting a completely original pun sculpture that best reflected where their imaginations could take them, from a butter-fly to a pup-tent!

Learning Culture Through Food With Middle School Spanish
Que delicioso! Middle School Spanish students got to put their language--and cooking--skills to the test as they made homemade tortillas. As part of their final project, students have been studying the cultural importance of food while learning to articulate recipes in Spanish step-by-step. The result is a tasty and educational lesson that has these Hornets saying más !

Seventh Grade English Discusses Animal Farm
Seventh grade English is reading and discussing the Orwell classic, Animal Farm. Students each took turns reading key portions of the book and then discussing the deeper social symbology, as well why they think Orwell chose the imagery. The exercise provides an opportunity for shared reflection and interpretation.
