The Bergman Academy Middle Scholar Program strives to provide a positive, engaging learning environment where the physical, emotional, intellectual, and social needs of each adolescent are met to ensure success. Equipped with unique learning spaces, a new science lab, and the natural setting of Greenwood Park, our Middle Scholar Program differentiates through project-based and experiential learning opportunities which engage students both inside and outside the classroom. We believe our commitment to academic rigor, combined with our small class sizes, is the foundation of our success and our success is backed by strong evidence, such as consistently high Iowa Assessment scores. Beyond academic achievement, our small class sizes and supportive environment encourage students to develop the confidence to face new challenges. Personal relationships with staff members and fellow classmates, as well as all-school meetings and mentoring programs, help build a strong sense of community among students and encourage our middles scholars to grow as leaders.
