Middle School Program

Presbyterian School’s Middle School program challenges, encourages and supports students as they continue to build their academic skills, discover their emerging talents and begin to understand their place in the wider world. The Middle School offers a vigorous four-year integrated academic curriculum focusing on dynamic ways to demonstrate learning and develop life skills. Our program provides learners with the requisite experiences for entry into Houston’s finest private and public high schools. More importantly, our program prepares our students for a life of purpose and fulfillment.

A challenging cross-section of the humanities, math and science forms the academic core. Our passionate teaching faculty encourages students to broaden their learning to include authentic experiences with service, leadership, and outdoor education. The curriculum also allows opportunities for collaboration with neighboring museums and organizations. We integrate technology purposefully to enhance classroom instruction and student learning.
