Middle School students are naturally curious and idealistic. Young people seek separation, independence and a sense of self at this stage of their lives, and girls are encouraged to get involved in all aspects of the school, to take responsibility for their own learning and to work both collaboratively and independently to develop a lifelong love of learning.
All students are encouraged to acquire critical thinking skills and demonstrate creativity, innovation and flexibility and continuously work towards making decisions and solving problems ethically and collaboratively.
Also enriching the educational experience are the specially themed Beyond the Classroom days, camps and excursions.
The Pastoral Care Programme is a multi-layered system of monitoring, support and guidance provided by Staff, Mentors, Year Coordinators and Assistant Year Coordinators. The Year Coordinators monitor the academic, social and emotional progress for each and every girl. They also design and implement developmentally appropriate pastoral care programmes and structures to complement and support students’ academic learning.
Middle schooling at Ravenswood allows each student to gain independence and develop her own sense of self-worth.
