Upper School

The Amigos Upper School is a powerful bridge between our students’ bilingual and bicultural K-5 experience, and the high school years that lie ahead. Students in sixth through eighth grades take English Language Arts, Math and Science in English, and Social Studies and Spanish Language Arts in Spanish every day. They hone their reading, writing, and critical thinking skills daily through a combination of whole group activities, small group collaboration, and individual work. An ‘upper school’ education at Amigos provides students with a strong foundation in critical thinking, writing, and problem solving across the curriculum. Students are given opportunities to engage in socially responsible activities such as school council and community service. Students at Amigos are socially and academically challenged and ready for advanced level courses in Spanish and in other content areas.

We consider ourselves to be a strong professional learning community that is nurturing and one, which honors the individuality, strengths and cultures of all our students. Whether it is bonding at The Farm School, walking to MIT for amazing Science field trips, dancing joyously at City Step performances, heading to New York City to celebrate its Hispanic heritage, or bidding a tearful goodbye at the 8th grade graduation, Amigos upper school students, teaches and administrators celebrate their time together with mutual respect and affection.
