​Middle School - Grades 5 through 8

Erie Day School’s Middle School education offers a personalized program for students in Grade 5 through 8. It's expanded academic curriculum encourages students to explore and pursue interests while fulfilling a challenging core curriculum. With a foundation in the Common Core State Standards and PA Learning Standards, our curriculum offers students an individualized, multi-age educational experience with an experienced faculty committed to teaching cooperation, tolerance and mutual respect. The Middle School environment is a set of mixed-grade-level classrooms offering English, mathematics, general sciences, and social sciences as well as programs designed to engage students in performing arts, visual arts, foreign languages, computer science and athletics. Students may also take high school level geometry, algebra, biology, literature and foreign language classes. By extending learning opportunities beyond the classroom, we are able to provide students with a rich, diversified education. Students explore museum exhibits, enjoy concerts, conduct online research and attend theater productions. Students in Grade 7 and 8 travel annually to the Shaw and Stratford Festivals in Ontario, Canada -- participating in tours of the Welland Canal, Fort George and Niagara Falls, in addition to theatrical performances.
