When students approach their middle school years, parents often start looking for parenting partners to help them safely and successfully launch their children into young-adulthood. They want a safe and supportive community to encourage their child’s budding individuality and growing independence in addition to helping their child reach their full potential.
When students enter 6th, 7th, and 8th grades, they are just starting to separate from their parents, and this is a critical time when they need especially good and inspiring teachers and role models. Due to peer influence, it is of even higher importance to surround them with middle school classmates who have strong aspirations, high character, and leadership skills, and who are mutually supportive of one another as they explore their own talents and interests.
Families who choose Clairbourn’s Middle School realize that they are investing in cumulative advantages for their child, which can never start early enough.
Families who choose Clairbourn’s Middle School realize that they are investing in cumulative advantages for their child, which can never start early enough. These advantages include small class sizes, individual attention, proper supervision, daily character education, high behavioral and academic standards, strong community relationships, and excellent positioning for entrance into top area private high schools.
Clairbourn recognizes that this impressionable age group must have a proven way to establish these foundational qualities of academic excellence, goodness of character, and personal resilience during these key years when students are deciding who they want to be as people. Our Middle School program ensures that each Clairbourn student is academically prepared, honest, responsible, respectful, kind, inclusive, a good citizen, grateful, possesses an individual sense of spirituality, and remains standing in the face of challenges.
Students who flourish in high school and beyond, without going adrift, are the ones who know who they are, what they value, and who have a positive self-concept and community support before they even reach high school.
Students who flourish in high school and beyond, without going adrift, are the ones who know who they are, what they value, and who have a positive self-concept and community support before they even reach high school. They are less likely to be pulled in questionable directions because they already know what genuine peer and community acceptance feels like, and will most likely lead others in positive directions instead of follow. Our families value how Clairbourn has helped their children flourish and are proud of who their children have become.
