The years when boys are in the sixth, seventh, eighth and ninth
grades are years of tremendous growth. Not only is there physical growth, but in the classes and sports, these middle school students grow in ability to discover new knowledge and develop new skills. Boys who attend Eaglebrook School during their middle school years also learn responsibility and build their self-confidence as they must be on time for meals, assembly, classes, and dorm study. They must be prepared for classes and on the playing field for team practice with all of their equipment. As boys move through the grades, they begin to take on leadership roles and set examples of responsible action for the younger students. The school has outlined a set of Core Skills
that are as much a part of the overall Eaglebrook education as academics.
