It is a transition phase when children learn to cooperate with their peers and adults. The involvement informal schooling and organized activities that begins during these years, introduces children to new social roles in which they earn social status by their competence and performance.
At ASTER, the middle school years are focused on helping each student to transition smoothly from the sheltered environment of the PRIMARY to the challenges they face in the senior years at school.
During these years, the focus is on balancing each student’s emotional aspect with his/her intellectual, social and physical development. Besides academics, the student are given lessons in value education, and taught to be responsible citizens.
