By the time students leave the Middle School, they have already completed several high school graduation requirements, paving the way for a greater personalization of curriculum which allows students to focus on their passions and take higherlevel and AP courses earlier.    Students are better equipped academically and socially for the rigors of high school, making the transition easier and enabling them to hit the ground running. As Middle Schoolers, students become acquainted with the high school environment and at ease with Gilmour’s block scheduling.    Middle School Advantage PDF
