La Scuola: Middle School Program
Our Middle School Program
La Scuola middle school students build critical thinking skills, creative acumen, and a global perspective through the rigor of the International Baccalaureate curriculum, a progressive pedagogy, and bi-lingual education. We believe La Scuola's middle school program provides students with a strong foundation for success in high school, college and life. Beyond academics, students become independent learners, proficient in life skills such as collaboration, research and communication.
Why La Scuola?
La Scuola educates the whole child - intellectually, physically and emotionally - in a joyful and happy environment.
Inquiry is the leading pedagogical tool of our transdisciplinary education, thereby fostering critical and creative thinking skills, confidence, integrity, collaboration and empathy.
Language acquisition is a cornerstone of a La Scuola education. Bilinguals have better cognitive and verbal skills, as well as higher executive function.
Our students develop a life-long love of learning and become world citizens who care about their local and global communities.
Students are surrounded by warm and nurturing teachers in an aesthetically beautiful environment, steeped in the Reggio-Emilia philosophy.
Students graduating from La Scuola have the cognitive, creative and social skills necessary for the challenges and opportunities of the 21st century.
