Grades 5-8

Welcome to our middle school and junior high!  Students in grades 5 & 6 (middle school) learn to navigate school days with multiple teachers, day bags, and after school activities with the guidance of their homerooms.  In grades 7 & 8, junior high students take ownership of their work and build the skills and tools they will need to be successful in high school.  We are happy that your child will be joining Ancillae and hope that you will facilitate with us a positive learning environment.
