By connecting academics to artistic production, we challenge our students to examine the human experience,
so that they can shape their own.

LOOKING FOR A DIFFERENT MIDDLE SCHOOL EXPERIENCE?

At ATLAS Middle School, small cohorts of students experience a safe, supportive learning environment with room to question, experiment, change, and grow. 

ATLAS is the school for families who want their children to:

  • be intellectually challenged, creatively inspired, and emotionally supported
  • belong to a small, loving learning community
  • thrive in high school and beyond as independent thinkers

ATLAS is a school designed expressly around the unique needs of 7th and 8th graders.

IDENTITY
Middle school students are at a crucial time of social and emotional growth, questioning the world and their place in it. We believe that theatre is the ideal medium for navigating the complexities of transitioning into independent thinkers and learners.

MOTIVATION
At ATLAS, students direct their own learning by running all aspects of a theatre company. We use the theatrical process to explore essential questions in literature, science, history, math, and beyond.

COMMUNITY
Our small cohorts of 10-18 students in each grade ensure a safe, supportive learning environment with room to question, experiment, change, and grow.


"It’s a really creative learning space, and your teachers care about you and your education"

CURIOUS about their world,
