Middle School Faculty

Hackley’s Middle School teachers are dynamic and passionate about their work. They understand that “character is higher than intellect” and that effective effort leads to sustained academic achievement. They build engaging curriculum that develops curiosity and builds student leadership, where character work is implicit as students work collaboratively, “learn from varying perspectives,” and develop the tools to think deeply and critically.
