FIFTH THROUGH EIGHTH GRADE
Adolescence can be a difficult time for both the child and parent. Holy Spirit Episcopal School strives to make that stage of life as smooth as possible for both parties by offering smaller class sizes and trained professionals. Research indicates that small class and school sizes create the optimum learning environment for adolescents.
The Middle School focuses on the following educational objectives:
* To provide an academic environment in which each student's intellectual, emotional, social, aesthetic and physical growth are accompanied by a corresponding spiritual and moral growth.
* To seek scholastic excellence through an emphasis on basic learning and critical thinking skills.
* To nurture self-esteem and a sense of fulfillment while guiding each student into the maturity necessary to manage his or her own learning.
* To cultivate in each child a sense of social and moral responsibility and genuine respect for others.
Students attend integrated language arts, math, science, history, Spanish and physical education classes throughout the week in Middle School. In addition, students attend trimester-long classes in the performing arts, visual arts, Christian education, and technology. Local field trips, Ecolink outdoor education, community service and the Costa Rica Mission Experience are integral parts of the curriculum. Students have leadership opportunities through Student Council, and National Junior Honor Society (NJHS).
The wonderful combination of a nurturing, safe, caring environment and our challenging curriculum prepares our students well. HSES is proud that most Middle School students are accepted in top-tier high schools in Houston and beyond.
