Bolles middle school students continue to develop their identities and build their independence under the guidance of caring faculty and advisors. At the Bolles Bartram Campus students learn responsibility, decision-making, and time management as they explore their interests in academics, arts, community service, and/or athletics. The middle school curriculum encourages students to expand their interests while they also prepare for the challenges and rigor of upper school. The programs offered in middle school begin to take on a more demanding pace for which the faculty works to prepare students. Higher concepts in each subject are introduced by faculty specializing in that subject. The middle school challenges students to obtain a level of personal satisfaction and success via a course of study that inspires excellence, courage, integrity, and compassion.
