Where Middle School Matters

Middle School is a time of tremendous growth and transformation. It’s an exciting, formative, and sometimes confusing time — and that’s why your middle schooler needs a place where they matter.


Our Middle School curriculum is specifically designed to engage the inquisitive, investigative minds of 6th-8th graders. With a focus on student agency, our middle schoolers regularly tackle inspiring projects that challenge them to examine problems, analyze relationships, identify patterns, and recognize the impact of decisions.

Stand Out

The Willow School’s nurturing, growth-oriented school environment supports academic achievement while also emphasizing character development and self-discovery. We pay attention to and support the whole child, which helps middle school students realize their full potential, in the classroom and beyond. Middle schoolers are school leaders, working with younger students on special projects, fundraisers, and school events.


At Willow we know that success beyond the classroom starts with teaching students how to be leaders, problem-solvers, and advocates — for themselves and others. In our Advisory program, students learn to develop healthy relationships, build confidence, and develop their SEL skills. In our Skills for Tomorrow class, students develop and lead their own service projects and deepen their self-understanding through capstone memoir projects.
