The Middle School years are a very important time in the development of young adults, both mentally and physically. Here at Lawrence Academy we believe in the Middle School being a time of transition for the students. In 6th grade they start changing classes, instead of being in a self-contained classroom. This allows the students to plan ahead to gather the necessary materials needed between classes, as well as exposing them to the various teaching styles of the teachers. Middle School is also a time when we instill in the student more a sense of self-reliance and responsibility while still in a safe, nurturing, and caring environment. The students are exposed to two periods of class rotations to expose them to as many things as possible. They are now able to go to various club activities in areas that pique their interest.
