Exploration, Transformation, and Joy

Hewitt’s middle school invites girls to embrace early adolescence as a time of exploration, transformation, and joy. Our learning culture is rooted in empathy—the ability to put oneself in another’s shoes—and Hewitt girls cultivate this essential habit of mind as both an intellectual and emotional practice. Middle school girls learn to support each other during a time of significant individual change, and their teachers serve as coaches and mentors in resisting pressures to conform and developing a sense of purpose as they explore who they are as young people.
