At a time when adolescents are developing a sense of self and discovering possibilities, we empower them to explore, create, reflect, and connect.

Middle Schoolers flourish when they are found and seen by others in a culture that holds them to high standards, surrounds them with positive relationships, and offers lots of variety, activity, and relevance. That is how students find themselves in these formative years, and that is what the Middle School delivers at AES.

Middle Schoolers bring a lot of ‘WOWs’ to the dinner table. Learning should be one of them.

The life of a middle school student at AES is dynamic. We want them to discover what it is like to be alive at school. Alive with questions. Alive with chatter. Alive with languages that inspire them to travel. Alive on the pitch or the court with new levels of skill and intensity. Alive in makerspaces that draw out students’ new ideas and inventions.

Middle Schoolers are just beginning to claim their stories and discover how and what they want to learn. Our program fills our students' days with challenges, action, relationships, high expectations, and high support, setting their course for years to come.

We believe that guiding a child through Middle School is a joint venture between families, teachers, and students. Communication with families is key.

AES is a community of learning, helping each other and caring for one another. The middle school has incredible drama, art and dance programs. Amazing classes and all types of electives. All the teachers support us, show us how to figure out solutions to our problems and how to live a good and moral life. Middle school is welcoming and accepts all kids and encourages them to be their true self. Thank you to everyone in our middle school for making it the way it is.

1:1 Technology

We believe that a balanced, authentic, and intentional integration of technology empowers students and faculty and is a driver of innovation at AES.  All middle school students are provided with a laptop for use at school and at home, ensuring each student is working with the same technology and enabling efficient and reliable support from our technology center.   


The AES school year runs from August through the end of May. There is a Winter Break, a Spring Break, and multiple long weekends around both Indian and North American holidays. 

The school day runs from 8:30 am – 3:35 pm (early release on Wednesdays at 2:30 pm).
