Middle School

Middle school students are ready to be enthusiastic critical thinkers, observing the world around them and drawing their own conclusions.

We help these young adolescents expand on the knowledge from intermediate school and relate that knowledge to their own lives and their community.  All this is done while maintaining their creativity and encouraging continued mind, body and ethical development.

In these grades the practical and theoretical come together as our responsible young adults work with each other, their teachers and their school. The Renaissance is an appropriate topic for this age of great exploration and discovery as is the fall of Rome and recent American history. Writing and mathematics turn practical in the curriculum of these later years as reports and compositions are written and presented on main lesson topics and special subjects. It is now time for competitive sports, orchestral music, and intensive woodworking.

Our middle school students are also encouraged to be leaders, collaborators and critical thinkers and are given many opportunities to help younger students, create and run essential programs for the school and community organizations.

Graduates of Spring Garden Waldorf Middle School go on to attend local public and private high schools throughout Northeast Ohio and surveys of alumni report above average grades for high school’s requirements in math, science and foreign language.
