Begun in 2013, the Five Acre Middle School gives independent, self-motivated students the opportunity to learn in a project-based classroom. Students pursue traditional academic subjects by completing substantial projects that demonstrate their ability to understand and engage the content.
Students study science, algebra, French, history, literature, music and art. All middle school students receive an iPad to support their learning. This year’s big project: design and construct a new Middle School classroom building that incorporates sustainable practices.
