|The Middle School at Staten Island Academy consists of Grades 5-8. The Tiger is the online newspaper for students, teachers, and parents of the Middle School. It is written by student writers in Grades 7-8.|
In the Middle School, students begin to stretch their wings in a safe, supportive environment. They study with teachers who specialize in specific subject matter and take advantage of fully equipped classrooms that function as laboratories and studios. At Staten Island Academy, we put students at the center of their education. We believe that by building our programs around students (as opposed to building students around our programs), learning can be long-lasting, meaningful, and fun. In the Middle School, the results are astonishing — students love school, their teachers know them well, and it’s cool to be smart.
