“Fisher Island Day School provides an exceptional learning environment for my children that is preparing them to compete academically and on a national level.”
Students in the Middle School (Grades 6 – 8) complete their academic journey at FIDS, which leads to admission to South Florida’s prestigious high schools. In Middle School, students rotate between classes to receive high levels of core-content instruction in language arts, mathematics, science, and social studies—including advanced and honors coursework, such as Algebra I, Algebra II, and Geometry. Additionally, all students are required to participate in Spanish as their main world-language component. Students are involved in the selection process when determining quarterly electives. Elective options include such courses as: art; physical education; music; robotics; keyboarding; creative writing; public speaking; and SSAT Prep. Extra-curricular activities for middle-school students include a range of sport offerings, such as soccer, cross-country running, tennis, basketball, golf, flag football, and volleyball. Other non-sport opportunities vary per quarter and serve as components of the active-hours after-school program.
