Middle School Tribes


The Middle School is organized into tribes to promote interactions across grade levels. Each tribe is named after a dragon and consists of students from the 5th through 8th grade. Tribes organize a monthly event which includes team and community building activities, intramural physical activities, and academic competitions. The goal of the program is to foster a sense of community and belonging within the Middle School and to prepare students to transition and participate in the House program in the High School.

Specific Tribes Goals

  • To provide a sense of belonging for each student.
  • To offer opportunities to work towards the life-long goals of being a caring and ethical individual,  a responsible citizen,  a problem solver and a good decision-maker.
  • To provide a safe environment which develops skills in group decision-making, conflict resolution, dealing with peer pressure and learning to respect others.
