Energetic. Social. Curious. Interesting. Challenging. Growing.
Middle School students are a unique group of young people who bring excitement and energy to the classroom. The Pennington Middle School is a safe place where these students can develop as individuals, build on their strengths, work to improve where necessary, make friends in a community diverse in age and national origin, and feel accepted no matter what their interests. To provide this nurturing environment, the Middle School has its own faculty, activities, and athletics; it is a school within a school.
Nevertheless, the Middle School plays a vital role in The Pennington School community. Middle School students interact with their Upper School peers on a regular basis in Junior Proctor groups, in the Student Center, during lunch, and in the dorms. Middle Schoolers contribute to chapel services, the literary magazine, arts presentations, and community service projects. The spirit of our Middle School students permeates the Pennington campus, helping to create the sense of welcome and industry that is what makes Pennington such an exceptional place in which to learn and grow.
