Middle School - Grades 5 to 9


The Middle School program builds on the strong foundation of the Prep School, continuing with an advanced curriculum in literature studies, math, science exploration, and French. A complete list of Middle School course descriptions can be found online.

Arts (Visual Art, Music, and Drama)

From pop art printmaking to landscapes of the Group of Seven, Middle School students are exposed to a wide variety of art forms and comprehensive art history. A school-wide art show is held each spring, featuring pieces from students at all grade levels.
Instrumental music is a thriving part of the arts curriculum, in the studio and onstage. Students can perform as part of the Concert Band, Jazz Band, and other small ensembles.
Students perform in a major dramatic production each year, ranging from the works of Shakespeare to classics such as Little Women.


A robust physical education program combines regular physical education classes, with a wide variety of competitive sports. Grammar competes in the Nova Scotia public school league, as well as with other independent schools, locally and nationally.


A commitment to service is an important component of the Middle School experience. All students participate in service learning and have many opportunities to raise awareness, raise funds, or simply provide time and support to people in their community.
