Young Authors Day Ignites a Love of Literacy in Students

Dr. Susannah Richards sparked a love of literacy in students and teachers alike on Corbett Prep's annual Young Authors Day. As the featured speaker, she spoke to every grade before the backdrop of a cozy bookstore, holding books high and spilling their secrets to capture her audience's attention. Richards is a national leader in English language arts and young adult literature whom Corbett Prep teachers connected with during summer conferences on gifted education.

Thespians Present "Beauty and the Beast"

Thespian Troupe 88622 will present a "tale as old as time" Oct. 12 and 13. Disney's Beauty and the Beast Jr. is Corbett Prep's entry into the Florida Junior Thespian Mainstage Competition, new this year for middle schools. A professional panel of judges is visiting middle schools across the state to screen full-length productions this fall for a chance to perform at the state thespian competition.


50 Years of Corbett Prep/IDS

Nearly 1,000 alumni, teachers, families and students filled the campus on Aug. 18, 2018 for a special 50th anniversary celebration for Corbett Prep/Independent Day School.

Guests enjoyed browsing photos, yearbooks and other memorabilia in the Farish Center. A special program followed in Gatlin Hall that honored long-time teachers Gery Morey, Kathy Folen and Debi Brockmeyer, retired teacher Judy Sobel, board member Bette Maniscalco and retiring Associate Headmaster Pam Ripple.

Fitness and Fun in the Mile Run

The entire school gathered to watch runners in third through eighth grade test their limits in Spring 2018 at Corbett Prep's ninth annual Mile Run Championship. Students had to qualify for the event by running a specific time during their physical education classes.

6th, 7th & 8th Grades

In addition to preparing our students to soar in a high school setting, Corbett Prep Middle School teachers support the student in developing the confidence, leadership, and character they will need in the future.

With opportunities to earn high school credits, our rigorous academics are aligned with the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme and are flexibly designed to meet individual needs. Variety and choice through specials, electives and clubs, athletic excellence and opportunity for all students, and a dedicated group of teachers who truly connect with each student blend to create a one-of-a-kind middle school experience.

Corbett Prep treats its Middle School students as leaders of the entire school, providing opportunities in on- and off-campus retreats for the students to practice leadership skills, discover their personal strengths, and work together as teams. Students in the Middle School and Intermediate Division also serve as buddies throughout the school year for Field Day, STEAM Fest, and other special activities.

The Benefits of the K-8th Grade School

Students attending schools that include the elementary and middle school grades have a better experience socially and academically, new research shows.

They're happier, perform better academically, and encounter less bullying than students who go to traditional middle schools.
