Middle School Community


We provide our students with a safe and supportive environment. The middle school program creates a strong, viable community, helping the adolescent feel valued, respected and confident. Community meetings with the entire middle school and in mentor groups (comprised of a smaller group of peers) provide students with daily opportunities to problem solve, discuss issues and support one another in the development of a healthy, respectful community based upon a mutually agreed upon code of civility. A 2009 graduate commented, “The community at Pacific Crest is incredible. Everyone is kind to everyone else and no one is excluded.”


A great work must be undertaken. —Maria Montessori
