We are now accepting applications for the 2024-2025 School Year.


Middle Way School offers a remarkably unique approach to modern education. We’re shifting the way children relate to learning—leading with loving-kindness as we cultivate globally conscious minds.

Our school thrives on the principle of inclusion. We actively seek to build a community that is rich with diverse cultures, races, talents, interests, learning profiles, and economic backgrounds.

We welcome you to inquire about our curriculum, our campus, and our community.

Middle Way School enrolls without discriminating against any race, age, national or ethnic origin, sex, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, or socioeconomic background and will make reasonable accommodations for individuals with known disabilities unless doing so would result in an undue hardship. As an institution and as individuals we have the responsibility to actively change the power differences that perpetuate biases against historically underrepresented and disadvantaged groups. We welcome your experience and input on how our school community can do this.
