Grades 5 and 6 are the main entry points for middle school with approximately 12 to 16 qualified candidates admitted. Seventh and eighth-grade spaces depend upon attrition. Class sizes are approximately 17 to 18 students per class at the middle school level.
The Middle School at Annunciation Orthodox School is comprised of grades five through eight. Grade 5 is a well-designed transition into the unique middle school years. The culture of the Middle School supports the development of character and ethics, independent and collaborative learning, as well as navigating the challenges of adolescence. Grade 8 prepares students for high school and beyond.
