Welcome to the Browning Middle School, a division devoted to the myriad differences and developments found in Grades Five through Form II.
A developmentally appropriate curriculum, a dedicated faculty committed to boys, and a well managed advisory program guide students with a variety of strengths toward self-reliance and a sense of responsibility and concern for others. We are a community dedicated to our mission and strive to cultivate in young men the habit of self-reflection essential to a life of integrity and purpose. Blending rigor, structure and reflection, our program offers the boys multiple ways in which to pursue excellence in the core academic classes, in the arts, on the athletic field and through a commitment to a wide range of extracurricular activities.
In classrooms, Middle School boys refine essential skills, build upon their prior knowledge and test their wings as critical thinkers by accepting invitations to pose challenging questions about their world. Communication skills, literacy immersion and development of a sound writing style are also paramount to the curriculum. Rich programs in the visual arts, music and technology round out this balanced introduction to the liberal arts. Various class trips in and out of Manhattan further expand the curriculum.
The Browning Middle School boy is engaged, caring and cared for. He is guided to apply himself to his fullest while taking risks and opening new doors of opportunity.
