What to Expect in the Middle Years!
November 9, 2022. 6-6:30 pm
“I’m the only kid in my high school who loved middle school.”
This is a recent quote from a Mackintosh alum. Come find out what the excitement is about!
Most adults, when asked, would not choose to repeat their Middle School experience. Find out why Mackintosh is the exception.
The transition to middle school is significant for all students and a key stepping stone on the path to high school. As you and your child prepare for this transition, we offer a Middle Years information session to help you learn more about what to expect. You will also get a sneak peek into the exciting Middle Years Programme.
This session is for all current 5th and 6th grade students and their parents as well as prospective families. Please contact our Director of Enrollment if you are interested in attending.
