Why Early Middle School?

Patrick Carruth, President and Headmaster

The “tween” years, when children are on the cusp of adolescence, are a time of great change and development for students. With that in mind, Bear Creek has created a unique division, Early Middle School, just for students in grades 5 and 6. In this video interview with grade 6 teacher Amy Fowler, we discuss what makes Early Middle School distinct at The Bear Creek School.

Catch Early Middle School students in action this week. Join us for the grade 6 productions of Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream at 6:00 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. both tonight, March 12, and tomorrow, March 13, in the Upper School's Performing Arts Center. On Thursday, March 14, grade 5 students will demonstrate their grasp of the scientific method as they display their research experiments at the Science Fair in the Main Commons from 6:30 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.

Grace and peace,

Patrick Carruth
