Advantages of a K-8 School
The infant-Grade 8 environment, where middle schoolers make a transition after Grade 8, provides tremendous opportunities. Choosing where to go next is probably the first big decision for students. It enables them to ponder who they are and the kind of environment that best suits them, at an age that is appropriate for them to begin contemplating those types of questions. It is like a trial run for college admissions, giving them confidence when that time comes.
