Middle School

Grades 7 & 8

Where Learning is Inspired

Students in our Middle School are asked to build on their skills and take their learning further. Thinking, patience, persistence and practice are at the core of all learning as they navigate more challenging material.

"We feel that our son has had a very good first month at Leahurst. He has made some good friends already and seems to be very comfortable with his classes and new surroundings. It is a real testament to the welcoming community of Leahurst staff and students." ⏤Leahurst Parent







Character Development

With a focus on kindness, resilience, personal development and responsibility, our program provides ongoing opportunities for growth. A safe environment encourages students to take risks, and these are at the core of both creativity and excellence. Whether in the classroom, on a field trip or incorporated into our enrichment programming, character development is at the core of it all.

In addition to core subjects, students complete courses in Public Speaking as well as Problem Solving and Strategic Thinking, Drama and Visual Arts. Daily Tutorials allow students to learn how to set priorities, collaborate with peers, and seek assistance when needed. These periods are carefully structured in order to allow Leahurst students to develop outstanding work habits.
