The Middle School years are an exciting time of academic, physical, emotional, and social growth. Horizons are expanded and identity is explored. The Middle School environment needs to be supportive and understanding of this pivotal moment in a child’s transformation into a young adult, while providing challenging stimulation to learn, develop, and thrive.

Santa Fe School for the Arts & Sciences is an independent expeditionary learning school serving Preschool through 8th Grade. Our Seventh & Eighth Grade program supports the whole child, providing a sanctuary environment where kindness and respect are the context within which profound learning can take place. Our expeditionary learning curriculum engages students in interdisciplinary, in-depth, project-based study of compelling topics that are connected to real world learning.

We invite you to get to know our Middle School and to learn how we support students at this crucial moment in their development and prepare them for the challenges of high school and beyond.

Our Middle School is comprised of 23 Seventh grade students and 23 Eighth grade students, 4 core faculty, and 7 adjunct faculty.  Because our Seventh grade class is larger than our Sixth grade class, each year we are able to welcome students from all over Santa Fe to come experience the dynamic and transformative education at Arts & Sciences.
