Middle School

Forms 6 - 8

It’s time to discover a whole new world! Saint Mary’s Hall Middle School is a vibrant and energetic educational environment that allows students to explore and participate in hands-on learning. Middle School students are focused and engaged in collaboration, investigation and research in their daily classes.

As students navigate new waters, they will be supported by passionate teachers who challenge and guide them as they develop critical thinking, organization, and study skills that will support them throughout their academic careers.

Students are also able to explore personal interests through participation in clubs, or develop leadership skills through running for elected office in one of our four leadership councils.
