Welcome from the Middle School Principal
We are delighted to welcome you to Soong Ching Ling School. The Middle School comprises grades 6-8 and offers an academic program modeled on the best independent and international schools. We use American Common Core standards adapted to our context, and prepare students for the rigorous college-preparatory curriculum of our High School.
We enjoy purpose-built teaching facilities on a very spacious campus, with plenty of room for students to get outside and run around and to benefit from a green and thriving natural landscape every school day. Hailing from seven countries, our teachers are experienced professionals dedicated to their students’ academic, social and emotional progress.
Our teachers are committed to the idea that all students can succeed, and that there are many paths to achievement. We provide wide exposure in our academic program, and many options in our extracurricular programs. So importantly in Middle School, we also train our students to develop productive work habits which may take the form of helping a student with time management, another with organizing his locker, and a third with preparing for a test. Witnessing dramatic student growth over the 3 years of Middle School is one of the delights of working with this age-group. This learning community is warm and inclusive, nurturing student development by means of challenge and support.
We look forward to showing you our gorgeous campus, and to introducing you to our students. They are joyful, inquisitive, and adaptable, approaching learning with open and curious minds. We hope you will join us!

Principal, Middle School and High School
