Parent Resources


“There is no parent more vulnerable to the excesses of overparenting than an unhappy parent. One of the most important things we do for our children is to present them with a version of adult life that is appealing and worth striving for.” – Madeline Levine


The song the elementary students are memorizing today is “Lean on Me” by Bill Withers. As I listened with them, I realized that these words are good for us parents today. Because, we, too, have started a journey. As we let our children take brave new steps into the world, we may need to lean on someone so that we are strong for our children.

Middle School is where young people rapidly start owning their education. Middle school is the perfect time to develop intellect and character while gaining a deeper sense of self and the real world. Students have a broad palette of topics to study and pair in-depth academic exploration with real-world connections to experts and local apprenticeships. Middle School is about deepening a passion for individual subjects while broadening your understanding of yourself and your future.
