The Sora Middle School is an exploratory, nurturing, and community-building experience where students are exposed to various topics and disciplines and have numerous opportunities to expand on their passions. Exploration in middle school is foundational to strengthening critical academic and life skills to further build upon in future educational experiences.

Disciplines

The Middle School Curriculum is comprised of a series of academic Units that are re-visited during each year of the Middle School experience. Curricular units have been designed to provide experiences in key academic disciplines, building a foundation for deeper learning as these units are re-visited each year, and built upon in later educational experiences (high school and beyond). This model allows for spaced repetition of thematic topics and concepts, promoting long-term retention of skills and allowing students to build upon prior knowledge each year while maintaining a balanced and well-rounded academic experience.
