The mission of the Middle School division is to provide a supportive environment that allows students to explore and develop their intellectual, creative, and physical abilities with confidence. We encourage students to think independently, to love learning, and to act with moral and social responsibility within a life guided by faith.
The Middle School of the Episcopal School of Dallas is an institution in which each student is given the opportunity to develop superior academic skills within an environment girded by expectations of honorable conduct and self-discipline.
We believe that students learn best when they are challenged by passionate teachers who are determined to convince young people that learning is a joy.
We believe that developing qualities of integrity, tolerance, character, and kindness are as important as educating the mind.
And we believe that each of these traits is best learned in a faith-centered environment in which each student is considered to be made in the image of God.
Upon completion of Middle School, Episcopal students are well prepared to meet the challenges of Upper School — academically, creatively, physically, and socially.
Episcopal School of Dallas operates on an academic semester calendar. In-class grades are determined on a numerical scale. Quarter grades are reported on a letter basis. Grade Reports are issued at the close of each quarter. The Grade Report provides an evaluation of the student's academic performance, effort, and behavior. Additional information is provided through the teacher's comments.
