At the beginning of each year, the middle school hosts a student council election.
Middle school students can run for cabinet positions as well as class representatives. Prior to election day, candidates are encouraged to post campaign posters and prepare a speech compelling classmates to elect them to a specific post. Speeches are delivered at a special assembly. Although the lower school does not participate, the fifth grade comes to watch and learn about the election process. Following the assembly, middle-school students cast ballots for their favorite candidates. Elected council members then take on a variety of responsibilities , including planning spirit days, organizing middle school dances, and running weekly assemblies.
