Middle School Student Life
Friendship and socialization are a key part of being a Middle School student, and our program ensures students have memorable opportunities to get to know each other outside of the classroom.
Being a SMUS student is about being a part of a larger community. Our students come from various backgrounds, and they can be comfortable knowing that no matter what they will be accepted and appreciated by those around them.
No Phone Zone
SMUS is deeply invested in classroom technology but we do not allow cellphones at the Middle School. We want students to enjoy the warm and welcoming environment of our school through building lasting friendships with each other and in the community. In our experience, cellphones are a distraction from face-to-face student life, especially at an age when young people do not yet have the skills to use them responsibly. Without cellphones and other devices, our students spend their recess and lunch hours kicking a ball on the field, playing chess, reading and – most importantly for development – socializing with one another.
Clubs and Councils
Middle School students are endlessly passionate about their interests, and we want to give them the opportunities they might not have in class to explore what they’re already interested in and what they’re curious about.
To do that, we offer a wide range of clubs and activities for students to join, such as Art Club, Honour Band, Mandarin Club, Math Challengers, Robotics Club, Student Councils (Service, Social, Sustainability, Athletics and Arts), WEB Leaders and more.
Food and Dining
Graves Hall, in our beautiful Sun Centre building, is where our Middle School and Senior School students can eat. Students have access to healthy and hot options at every meal, alongside a full salad bar, fruits, cereals and more. The kitchen staff will also work with students if they have allergies or dietary restrictions.
