Middle School Director's Welcome
Thank you for your interest in Thayer Academy Middle School. At an age when students are still very much exploring their strengths and their interests, we believe that it is especially important to encourage students to try new and different things, and both our schedule and our extra-curricular programs are designed with that objective in mind.
Opportunities at Thayer Academy Middle School are abundant, and all of our students are completely involved in the life of the school, from academics and athletics to arts, community service, and our club and activity program. As a result, at this crucial age in their development, our students are able to find passions both within and beyond the classroom.
Like their students, teachers at the Middle School participate fully in the Thayer community. Our teachers’ roles extend beyond the classroom, as they are also coaches, advisors, and sponsors of clubs and activities. These multiple roles allow faculty members to truly know each of our students, and we believe that when students are known, they realize that they are valued. In turn, this feeling of appreciation means that students are more likely to experience and enjoy meaningful success, not only academically, but in other areas of their lives as well.
Thayer Academy Middle School allows students to become confident, well-rounded, and independent learners in a supportive yet challenging environment. I would encourage you to visit the Middle School and to see first-hand the energy, the intellectual exploration, and the genuine feeling of community that exists at our school.
