Because entering middle school is an emotional experience, the sixth grade team wanted to quickly build a community where students thrive socially, emotionally, and academically. The Quaker Hill Challenge Course inspired character, kindness and teamwork among 6th graders. Together, students had a chance to solve real problems with more than one solution.

After working with their cohorts all day, they felt connectedness to their peers and teachers. The rapport built at this retreat will carry on throughout all of middle school.
