The Middle School curriculum requires that every class meet by discipline in groups ranging from ten to sixteen students. Faculty members approach each of their subject matters with a thoughtful understanding of the emotional, social, and cognitive development of girls in the early years of adolescence. They work beyond the classroom, developing relationships with all of their students by advising, listening, sharing and reaching out to the students. In a climate where Middle Schoolers are inundated by the dos and don'ts of doing their best to identify who they are in context of their immediate surroundings, Lincoln's program provides an environment which nurtures the child and stimulates the student.
The Middle School curriculum is also guided by themes particular to each grade.
Grade 6: Where do I come from?
Grade 7: Who am I?
Grade 8: Where am I going?
These questions will be woven throughout the daily life in the Middle School - in academic classes, advisor groups, field trips, and service learning opportunities.
