The Intermediate School provides a structured, highly interactive environment in which girls learn to apply their skills. During this time, girls gain confidence and their abilities are brought to fruition. Integrated technology is an important part of the Intermediate School program. Students work with laptops and apply sophisticated technology skills across all disciplines. Intermediate students also study art, music, a second language, math, science, social studies, language arts and religion. Girls participate in team and individual sports. Students have weekly library periods scheduled into their language arts program where they are exposed to classics in literature and the application of research skills. Students gradually learn to take greater responsibility for their own learning. Special attention is given to the development of critical thinking skills and the ability to communicate both orally and in writing.
