Lincoln School Providence

Interior Masthead

Middle School

Grades 6-8

Middle School at Lincoln means classrooms, hallways, art spaces, sports fields, science labs, and performance spaces bustling with student activity, the exchange of ideas, and girls doing what they do best in these middle school years: learning by doing, experimenting, and communicating.


Glance into the algebra classroom and you’ll see students working together to solve complex equations. Enter a science class and you might find students down on the floor testing out the cars they built learning the laws of physics. Or stop by the meeting room to watch girls speak in Spanish together and learn salsa dance from their teacher. As they study and explore, our students develop confidence and self-advocacy skills that will serve them in Upper School and beyond.

In addition to their core academic classes, Middle School students choose from enrichment electives such as chorus, musical ensemble, visual art, and robotics. Together they travel to Thompson Island to participate in high ropes courses and community building, experience week-long engineering immersion programs, and, as eighth graders, travel to New York to visit the United Nations as the culmination of a human rights course. Outside of class, Middle School girls can explore their interests through extracurricular activities like the Math Counts team, the Girls Who Code club, athletics, dramatic arts, and more.
