Passion, energy, honor. These are just a few words that describe the McDonogh Middle School. Recognizing the powerful developmental stages of adolescence, the Middle School seeks to create a safe place where students discover their passion, use their abundant energy in positive ways in and outside of the classrooms, and learn to honor themselves, their peers, and the greater community. Our goal is to enhance their natural curiosity, open-mindedness, and confidence.
The Middle School provides a challenging and stimulating academic program. The skills necessary to succeed intellectually and socially are taught as the background to the body of knowledge children learn. Our advisor program provides personal guidance and support for each student. Our team of dedicated, passionate teachers addresses the whole child, not just their specific curricular areas.
