Middle School

Interim Middle School Head Jennifer Nicholas

Welcome to the exciting world of Maryvale’s Middle School—an environment perfectly tailored to the academic, social and spiritual needs of adolescent girls. Guided by the charism of our founders, the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur, we ignite our students’ curiosity and enthusiasm for learning, preparing them for lifelong success and leadership as citizens in the global community.

Our specialized, talented faculty and staff guide each student to her potential. Our size provides individualized, student-centered instruction. Maryvale’s Middle School academics are rigorous, reflecting and embracing our students’ diverse talents, motivating them to discover, create and achieve.

Innovative programs — from the Leadership Institute to our unique S.T.E.M. offerings during “Mini-Mester” — inspire our young women. A full range of extracurricular clubs and sports help students to explore, to make choices and to grow. Our regular Advisory Program and student-led assemblies enable every girl to feel a part of a strong, supportive community. As participants in the robust Christian service program, Maryvale Middle Schoolers participate in regular quiet reflection and spiritual exercises.

As an experienced Middle School educator, I invite you to visit and experience the joy and energy of the Maryvale community. You won’t find a more vibrant, inclusive Middle School environment!
