LION Middle School (4-8) supports students’ development of the skills necessary for success in high school and beyond.

The Middle School curriculum is designed to prepare students to earn high school course and exam credits across core subject areas by the end of 8th grade. This positions students to take advanced courses, including college credit bearing classes in high school. Teachers partner to create cross-curricular learning experiences that engage students in critical analysis and application. Partnership with families and character development remain core components of our program in the Middle School.


All of our 8th grade students take high school level courses, putting them on the path to college success. They sit for two  regents exams, Algebra 1 and Earth Science.
