Meet Our Upper School Teachers

They teach students in Grades 6 through 12 across three divisions to ensure personalization.  Division 1 includes the middle grades (6-8); Division 2 students are in 9th and 10th grades; and Division 3 students are Juniors and Seniors.  Teachers also work across content areas: Mathematics, Science, Social Studies, English, Art, Spanish, and Physical Education. A team of Special Education teachers co-teach to ensure all students are fully included in our instructional program.
