Japhet School’s Upper Classroom provides a safe middle school setting in which students find their own voice – a setting that allows students to discover their role in providing social justice. Figuring out how to balance rigorous academics and interpersonal relationships with minimal – but watchful – adult assistance prepares them for a successful high school experience.
Upper Class students are coached to model the Japhet ideal by accepting challenges, understanding concepts within a global context, and living the Japhet character qualities in their work and social habits. Leadership opportunities arise with frequent public speaking and assembly planning, Student Council, Leadership Class with the Head of School, and service.
Japhet School's mission is to nurture and prepare each child for life by integrating character education with a strong academic program.
