Middle School Leadership

In the Middle School, students take ownership of their education, both by choosing their electives and projects, and by stepping into formal and informal leadership roles. Every class meets as a whole at least once a week, and in these student-led discussions, kids find their voices and unlock their potential to motivate their peers and take control of their destiny.

Teachers treat every student with genuine respect, showing them that their opinions matter and that they have the capacity to improve their school – and their world – by turning their ideas into reality. Whether they want to arrange a Spanish immersion table during lunchtime or organize a contingent of students, faculty, and alumni to represent Meadowbrook in the Boston Pride Parade, students work fearlessly to bring their vision for the school to life. In the process, they acquire essential leadership skills and a greater understanding of their own potential – qualities that will serve them well no matter where their journey leads.
