Our middle school classes strive to bridge the gap between elementary and high school, and ease the transition of young students into adolescence.


Our middle school program allows for the individual development of each student in a safe and caring environment.  We believe in nurturing the academic potential, the emotional development, and the spiritual growth of each of our students.  This is accomplished through our high academic standards and our vigilant staff.  HTLS middle school students are given the tools to go on to High School and be successful, both academically and socially. Having had a firm foundation in their studies and their faith, students feel more confident in being true to themselves, and to Christ, as they navigate high school.

In 2017 our school was Gold 100% STEM certified by the ACT based on our 8th grade students' ACT Aspire test scores. With a strong choral and instrumental music program as well as art class we are a qualified STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) school.

This unique test uses a connected approach. ACT Aspire is anchored by the ACT®, now the leading college entrance assessment. Such continuity is unmatched by other systems.
It goes beyond other solutions because the ACT Aspire Assessment System will provides standard-based reporting — with reporting categories based on the ACT College Readiness Standards — and aligned to the Common Core State Standards.The ACT Aspire measures a student's progress using the most comprehensive academic guideposts available.
