Middle School (6th – 8th grades)

At Magellan International School our Middle School students learn through critical thinking and inquiry. Students are challenged and engaged daily in seminars, group and individual projects, presentations, and performances. Learn more about our Program.

Our school prepares children to thrive as global citizens of the 21st century with the knowledge, skills and values to make informed and intelligent decisions in an increasingly competitive world and to champion sustainability and understanding. We are a united community of different cultures committed to world-class education and lifelong learning.
