Serving Preschool Through 8th Grade in the San Francisco East Bay Since 1962
Middle School: 6-8
Whole Child, High School Readiness
In the Middle School at Seven Hills, we have built a challenging curriculum that develops competence in key areas - writing and speaking proficiency, quantitative analytical skills, social-emotional skills, restorative justice, knowledge of scientific concepts and methods, and an understanding of history and the development of diverse cultures.
Middle School should provide opportunities for exploring new subjects and pursuing new interests. In that spirit, we encourage the development of the whole student - academically, creatively, emotionally, and socially. Many students develop new academic strengths, participate in new sports or electives, lead in Student Council, or discover their creative talents in Middle School.
"Seven Hills Middle School makes me want to go back to school! To sit in those classes and have those conversations, to succeed and fail in those hands-on simulations, to travel with my classmates domestically and internationally...sign me up!"
Did you know?
At Seven Hills, students have an opportunity to learn outside the limitations of classroom walls and textbooks. At every grade level, they are inspired to learn through hands-on, interactive projects and events. In Middle School, students recite Biologues, launch a self-designed rocket 100 feet in the air during Astrogation Week, and present research paper topics to an audience of family, faculty, and friends as a TED Talk.
Middle School trips include outdoor education in Lassen, American history and culture in Washington DC, and the performing arts at The Elizabethan Theatre in Ashland, Oregon. Students also develop international friendships through our Japanese exchange program and international travel to Japan and Europe.
