6th -8th Grade Program


The middle school experience at NDAE is informed by current research and best practices in education. In 5th grade, students are introduced to the middle school faculty, class pacing and structure, and as a result they are better prepared for the academic rigor and social environment of middle school. In addition to having interaction with single subject teachers in 5th grade, they are introduced to a study skills course that provides them with the foundational framework for their academic journey and fosters critical thinking skills. The continuity in design makes for a supportive environment and sets the students up for success."   eighth Grade Parent
