What to Expect in the Middle Years!

When: Weds., Nov. 13, 4:00-5:30 pm
Who: All current 5th and 6th grade students and parents

“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.  During this session we will share important research about the adolescent brain and how our program specifically addresses the needs of developing adolescents.  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.   Childcare is free for younger siblings of current students; please notify our office manager if you need childcare for this event.

During this informative 90 minutes, we will cover the following:

  • Middle Years highlights presented by current students
  • Overview of the MYP and how it differs from PYP
  • Meet the MYP teaching team
  • Learn about the adolescent brain and what to expect as parents and as students in the coming years
  • Tour the MYP classrooms and social area
  • Q&A session with current MY students and alums who will also speak to the high school transition

Prospective families, please contact the front office to RSVP so we know to expect you!
