So much of Middle School is about discovering who you are and what things you are most passionate about. In the Middle School we wants our students to feel safe so that they will feel comfortable taking healthy risks and explore their interests. We want our students to feel secure in asking questions and stretching their boundaries. We understand how important it is for our students to feel safe and have a sense of belonging or a place in which they can openly express themselves without feeling exposed or embarrassed. We want our students to learn how to handle small setbacks and failures as well as celebrate humbly when they find great success. 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.
At 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. In Middle School, students are encouraged to try as many things as possible so that they can discover their place and uncover their true passions. Our faculty 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 our top priority.
