A small Middle School with big opportunities
Energetic. Social. Curious. Interesting. Challenging.
The Middle School at Pennington is a small, friendly environment with big opportunities for academic and personal growth. With just over 100 students in all, our Middle School offers its own curricular and co-curricular program, its own faculty dedicated to these transformative years, and its own unique identity. The Middle School, however, is very much a part of the larger Pennington community.
Middle School students are expected to work hard in the classroom and to be active participants in their own education. In working closely with faculty and their peers, students will be asked to experience new things and to stretch and challenge their perspectives. Students will build upon their strengths and develop as individuals while making close friends in a community diverse in age and national origin. Our nurturing and committed environment is designed to support students where they are, both developmentally and intellectually.
The spirit of our Middle School students permeates the Pennington campus, helping to create the sense of welcome, inclusion, and industry that makes The Pennington School such an exceptional place in which to learn and grow.
This week, members of the Upper School Drama program visited eighth-grade English classes to present and talk about performing Shakespeare. The eighth-graders are reading and performing A Midsummer Night's Dream.
The Middle School is celebrating Kindness Week! The goal is simple--spread kind words and actions all week!
