    Middle school (5th – 8th grade) is designed to give students precisely the guidance and support they need to negotiate these years comfortably.

  • Upper School

    In Friend Select’s exemplary upper school (9th – 12th grades) college preparation program, students master core academic content.  The courses—English, history, mathematics, science and world languages—require ever-increasing levels of independence, critical thinking and leadership.
