Middle School

Our Philosophy

At Laurel School of Princeton, the middle school years provide an opportunity to continue our expert specialized instruction building upon their foundational skills in reading, language arts and mathematics. While students may still require review and repetition of foundational skill instruction at times, we are focusing on preparing them  to become strong, independent learners in high school and beyond. We implement a competency based curriculum designed to develop each student’s  social-emotional learning, written and oral communication, executive functioning, and critical thinking, through project based learning.
