Humanities is the study of the human condition. In the Middle School Humanities program, students explore history, literature, art, geography and current events while building reading, writing and speaking skills both individually, and in teams, on projects, simulations and presentations.
Middle School students become more confident communicators, more effective collaborators, more well-rounded, independent thinkers, and—most importantly—more intrigued by the stories they encounter every day.
