Single Hero

Here in NSU University School’s Middle School, you will not find quiet hallways and silent classrooms. Instead, you will find classrooms, hallways, art spaces, sports fields, science labs, and the stage all bustling with student activity, the exchange of ideas, and students doing what they do best in these middle school years: learning by doing, experimenting, and communicating.

Our cutting-edge academic program empowers students to pursue knowledge, questions, and big ideas. Dedicated faculty use a variety of instructional strategies to foster curiosity, exploration, and creativity. Harkness discussions take place regularly in English and social science classes while the Modeling Method is used to engage students in science and other academic areas. NSU University School teachers understand that every child learns in their own way, so they continually seek to differentiate instruction to reach every learner. They know that a "one size fits all" education never really fits.

During Middle School, we encourage our students to maintain their curiosity and creativity while stretching their self-confidence and self-advocacy. Students take the time to explore new electives, try interscholastic sports, and perform on or behind the stage in one of our theatrical performances. These new opportunities help to broaden their horizons and help them discover their passion.

Our ultimate goal is that students will leave Middle School as critical thinkers, independent and lifelong learners, strong communicators, healthy risk takers, and good global citizens.
