Grade 6-8 Admissions
During their Middle School years at SD, students will master fundamental skills and gain knowledge in all of the core academic subjects. Because we understand that a child's well-being and emotional development are inextricably linked to their ability to thrive, our programs foster a "growth mindset" - an inner drive to work toward further mastery, greater understanding, and higher achievement. Combined with our 500-acre solar powered campus, a living laboratory for hands-on learning, the result is students who develop a love for learning, and school days that feel more like play.
Dear Admissions Team,
I just wanted you to know how incredibly happy we are. I have been thinking about this time last year when we were praying to the universe that Amelia would have the opportunity to go to SD.
I just want you to know how blessed we feel to have her there. Her teachers are truly amazing!
The transition has been virtually seamless and she is definitely where she is meant to be.
Hope to see you soon.
