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.

Middle school students are faced with many challenges, and connecting with our students is vital for their growth and confidence. We are aware of their social pressures, struggles with balancing screen time, and the high expectations of keeping up with assignments and projects. Our teachers form meaningful relationships with each student and help them navigate these daily challenges.
