Middle School Overview
Welcome to Hilton Head Prep Middle School. Middle School is a place of transition for young adolescents who are growing at a rapid pace socially, emotionally and intellectually. Our goal is to provide a trusting foundation where they could begin to make choices, take on more responsibilities and learn to advocate for themselves in a supportive environment. Our skilled Middle School faculty lead sixth-, seventh-, and eighth-graders in discovering students' capacities for leadership and the necessary qualities of confidence, ethics, responsibility and respect.
Middle School provides and environment in which students will develop a strong academic background and a sense of ethical and social responsibilities. Critical thinking, creativity, cooperative learning, innovation and inquiry are the primary focal points of the Middle School program. Students are encouraged to participate in activities to explore and develop both their interests and talents.
The close personal relationships developed in the classrooms, on the playing field, in the performing arts and in the advisory sessions make Hilton Head Prep a special place for Middle School students. With caring adults who nurture them and guide them through their time at the Middle School, students become proficient learners and also gain understanding of how to be better citizens in an ever-changing world.
Middle School provides a rich and varied experience. Hilton Head Prep believes that upon completion of the eighth grade, every student will have the necessary integrity and academic skills to be a contributing member of the upper school. We are here to help and assist you and your child during this next step into their academic journey.Darcy DevrnjaHead of Middle SchoolGrades 6-8
