Middle Division

Middle Division at Milton Hershey School covers the transitional years of fifth-eighth grade. During these formative years, our program focuses on academic performance, student engagement, and creating a  positive and supportive culture.

2016_1019_mhs_206Our approach centers on the whole child, with the goal of helping students:

  • Achieve academically.
  • Build self-esteem.
  • Develop as individuals.
  • Learn responsibility.
  • Grow socially and emotionally.
  • Take charge  of their physical health and fitness.

Why do our Middle Division students excel?

Middle Division students at Milton Hershey School are thriving thanks to our small class sizes, access to a variety of extracurricular activities and courses that spark imagination.

The Middle Division program makes a difference in the lives of students by offering:

      • An emphasis on literacy and mathematics with hands-on lessons to reinforce classroom learning.
      • Elective after-school activities.
      • Career education with opportunities for field trips, job shadowing and learning from special guest speakers.
      • Health and wellness education, including information about dental care, diet and exercise, maintaining a positive body image, social skills, and standing up for others.

MHS Middle Division covers fifth through eighth grade.

Our students are taught by the best and brightest teachers who inspire and motivate students to succeed by educating with a growth mindset. Teachers recognize that every student’s capacity for learning is limitless and that learning is enhanced through experiences that build on classroom learning.

The effort we put into encouraging student learning can be seen from our outstanding growth and achievement.

What happens after the school day ends?

Students in Middle Division have access to a variety of athletic programs, such as cross country, football, soccer, cheerleading and field hockey.

In addition to athletics, MHS has many programs for students to develop their artistic talents through music, drama and visual arts.

Students also can take part in the After-School Activity Program two days each week. From intramural sports and Taekwondo to board games and movie making, there is something to fit every interest.

Catherine Hall, where Middle Division students attend school, also houses a recreation center that is open for events for students to celebrate academic achievements and positive behavior.
