Middle School Overview
The middle school years, grades six to eight, are a time of exploration. In middle school, students are just starting to know themselves, their friends and the world around them in a deeper and more meaningful way. Accordingly, the middle school program at M'KIS is designed to guide and support students through this dynamic transitional period.
Students are exposed to a wider range of subject matter and curricula, while being encouraged to ask higher-level questions that require more sophisticated thinking skills.
Middle schoolers love the options they now have before them, from the introduction of elective choices on their schedules, to the ability to choose their own food in the M'KIS Cafe each day. Middle schoolers are equally fond of the annual three-day Malaysian Studies trips – for many, this exciting experience is their first time away from family!
Although our middle school shares the same campus with elementary and high school, we have been ever-mindful to develop a distinct middle school philosophy and program to meet the needs of students. A focus on making connections academically, developing organizational skills and greater independence, as well as providing opportunity for personal expression, are fundamentals of the growing middle school program a M'KIS.
