In the Classroom

Our Middle School classrooms are
active and collaborative.

Students may build a model car, use physics to design a bridge, or act out Greek mythology. Middle School students, whether day students or 8th grade boarders, have full access to all of our Upper School’s amenities, including our Arts Center, Center for Learning Achievement, and state-of-the-art athletic facilities.

In the classroom, a focus on study skills like note taking, time management, and test preparation prepare each student for the Upper School and beyond. As a 7th or 8th grader at Trinity-Pawling, boys learn much more than basic academic subjects. They learn how to carry themselves with honor and integrity. They learn to be thoughtful, genuine, and empathetic. And perhaps most importantly, they emerge knowing their potential and ready to achieve greatness.

I’ve been incorporating group work and active, out-of-your-seat learning for a long time. I believe in it and it’s so important when teaching boys. I’m very glad it has become such an essential part of the curriculum here at T-P.Jay Kellogg,
