An independent day school for grades 6-12

Human Development in the Middle School

Over the course of the school year, each grade level in the Middle School will experience three Human Development Days. For example, the 8th grade ventured off campus in early October to work at community partners Glide Memorial Church, Samaritan House...

...and Life Moves--all of which serve unhoused people. The theme of the 8th grade HD program is "Leadership in Action and in Organizations," so our students are actively involved in preparing meals, organizing pantries and storage, cleaning up landscaping, and just about anything organizations need help with to serve their clientele better. In the process, students learn about the issues surrounding homelessness in the Bay Area and what they can do to help others.
