6th grade through 8 grade
In Middle School, Woodlawn students are given the means to think, understand, and apply their knowledge through intellectual and practical problem solving. Their developmental needs are addressed by supporting their increased need for good organization, routine study skills, responsibility for their work, and mature social behavior.

PROJECT BASED LEARNING FOUNDATION
The core subjects of our Middle School program are Language Arts, Social Studies, Math, Science, and Spanish. Enrichment classes include Visual Arts, Music, Fitness, Service Learning, and Gardening. Students also have the opportunity to choose from a variety of electives classes offered throughout the year. The Middle School curriculum is driven by essential questions that are designed to fulfill Woodlawn’s mission:
- Sixth Grade: What does it mean to be part of a society?
- Seventh Grade: What does it mean to be human?
- Eighth Grade: How did we get here?

Woodlawn middle school students are immersed in social experiences to continue building on themes from lower school. Whether traveling abroad, taking part in an overnight trip or common hour on campus, our students benefit from a wide range of social interactions to build character, responsibility, and leadership skills.
“Woodlawn is special. The bonds between friends are unbreakable and the teachers are fabulous and caring. The Woodlawn Middle School is small and unique. Each class has their own personality and flair. There is no other school like Woodlawn. Woodlawn is my home.”
