The Mission and Purpose

Welcome to the Middle School

The personal formation of each student is paramount to the mission and objectives of The Heights School. With this personal development in mind, the primary purpose of the Middle School is to help students develop Habits, particular skills for learning that can be used repeatedly throughout their academic career.

While learning about facts and the subject matter in any class must be a priority, enabling each student to develop the habits of mind necessary for a life of learning is of the utmost importance at this stage in a boy’s education.

The Middle School years are a time in a boy's life when he is particularly impressionable, somewhere in between a young boy and a young man, and these years often shape the expectations he has for himself going forward. These are the years when a boy can choose on his own to care deeply, even as much as his parents, and then aspire to grow in personal habit, faith, and virtue.
