Middle School

Our 6-8 curriculum, centered around our Habits of Heart and Mind and Habits of Learning, is designed to help students realize their potential and develop an excitement for learning through their relationships with bright, dynamic teachers who inspire, challenge, and nurture.


Menlo strives to be a community where every person feels welcomed, seen, valued, heard, affirmed, and cared for. Through our entire community’s commitment to our shared values of empathy, respect, reflection, restoration, and recognition, everyone will have the opportunity to be a full participant in the life of the School and leave a lasting legacy as their best and authentic self.
