Middle School Days is an annual tradition that has been offered continuously for almost four decades and is a large component of the Charles Wright experiential education program. During this two-day event, all regular MS classes are suspended and students instead participate in courses and workshops a range of activities in the fields of art, fashion, science, sport and fitness, culture, technology, design, outdoor education, culinary arts, and more.
Middle School days offers two days of experiential learning in a variety of settings. Students select from special courses, service-learning work, and day long activities on and off campus. By going beyond the classroom curriculum, Middle School days encourages personal growth, pushes students outside their daily academics, includes appropriate risk-taking opportunities, and strengthens our community by providing students and teachers with time to learn together outside of our normal school day. Students have the chance to observe and practice a number of our school values: Integrity, Perseverance, Excellence, Respect, and Compassion.
