The Mark Kelly Middle School is where students mature into grounded and compassionate members of society who are prepared for future challenges.
Our middle school begins as students enter their formative years. Therefore, we have intentionally designed our 5th through 8th grade program to sharpen social-emotional skills and push intellectual curiosity. Our enrichment team carefully curates offerings to meet a wide variety of interests and include everything from fine arts to coding and design thinking.
It is an honor and a privilege to support students as they go through one of the most robust social, emotional, physical, and academic growth periods of their lives. Dr. James P. Comer once said, "No significant learning can occur without a significant relationship." We believe this to be true and strive to be a place where children feel known and cared for as they develop into responsible citizens that revel in the joy of learning.
Heather Haas, Head of Middle School
Middle school is a precious stage for learners. It is a time to explore unique talents, develop independence, take intellectual risks, and simply enjoy being a kid. Our AOS middle school educators guide our incoming 5th graders to become high school-ready 8th graders by providing challenging academic curriculum, social-emotional support and growth, and creative opportunities to think critically.
