Middle School

We believe that preparation for College and for lifelong success begins in Middle School.

The Middle School of Saint Demetrios acts as a bridge between the Elementary School and the High School. Middle School years are a prime time for cognitive learning and personal growth. As a result, our school offers guidance and support for every student in order to help make their transition as comfortable as possible.

Our Middle school program is based not only on fundamentals but focuses on developing critical thinking skills, oral and written communication skills and analytical thinking. The program is based on rigor, intensity, and focus. We consider it our responsibility to prepare our students/your child for college and for life and this begins in the sixth grade.

Saint Demetrios sets high standards for personal responsibility and places an emphasis on intellectual curiosity, integrity, and respect for others. Across academic disciplines, Saint Demetrios Prep exists to provide an educational program of the highest standard that empowers all students to achieve personal and academic excellence while developing their full potential as responsible, productive citizens.

We provide a structured style of learning along with a variety of interactive, hands-on approaches. Our curriculum also places a focus on our Greek language, culture and Hellenic Orthodox faith. Students are offered electives such as art, music, computers and physical education, as well.
Every member of our staff collaboratively and actively works together in order to create a successful educational work environment. They are determined to provide an enriched education for the “whole student”. Our students are extremely prepared as a result of a stimulating and rigorous academic curriculum, an exceptional faculty and small class size. Our students also participate in a variety of extracurricular activities that extend beyond their well-rounded classroom programs. These activities help our students learn important social, leadership and life skills necessary for the 21st Century.

At Saint Demetrios Middle School, we want every child who attends our school to know that he or she is part of a family. Although we stress the importance of higher learning, we also realize that our success will also be measured by each student’s individual contribution to society. Students leave Saint Demetrios Middle School demonstrating a mastery of the curriculum, and at the same time are also motivated with the desire to continue to learn and grow so that they can make a difference in the world.
