"The pre-teen and early teen years are ones of growth and transition. This is an exciting, but sometimes stressful time in a girl’s life marked by many physical, emotional and social changes. The goal of the counseling and wellness program in the middle school is to help our girls navigate these changes while offering support and strategies to be successful in each stage of development. In Middle School, we build upon concepts learned in Lower School and continue to discuss topics such as stress management, conflict resolution, organization skills, identifying learning styles and study habits, mindfulness, self-esteem and body image, emotional well-being, and substance prevention. Our goal is to build a strong foundation for our girls as they transition into adolescence."
