Hyla Middle School creates an educational environment where middle school children (grades 6-8) are intrigued with learning. Our philosophy insists on small class sizes so that students and teachers can develop the close, caring connections that are the foundation of all learning. Our pedagogy is infused with freedom, choice and collaboration to engage students in their own academic growth through place-based, experiential learning. Our culture of respect, kindness, inclusion and responsibility develops young leaders with character and integrity. Our community of teachers, students and parents works together to help students grow as individuals into their best selves.
