School Life

Middle School Activities


Standing for The Agents of Social Change, TASC is a vibrant and diverse student group open to all Middle School students. The club, founded on the belief that “we will be able to make a difference in our world,” promotes service, school spirit, mentoring, and leadership opportunities. Meetings are typically held during the school day, enabling students to participate despite after-school commitments. TASC members learn to use Quaker process in decision-making. Students are mentored in clerking their own meetings, reaching consensus, and working together respectfully and cooperatively with the help and support of faculty members.
