Bolles middle school students continue to develop their identities and build their independence under the guidance of caring faculty and advisors. On the Bolles Bartram Campus students learn responsibility, decision-making, and time management as they explore all things possible in an environment with their peers. The middle school curriculum encourages students’ expanding interests while they further hone their study habits and become prepared to take on the challenges and decisions 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. All subjects are sequential to become more in-depth with progressive grade levels.
