Enrichment & Summer Programs
Every other year, interested Sussex students in grades five through eight prepare and perform a drama or musical production as part of supplemental enrichment.
Past productions have included “Seussical, Jr.,” “Fame,” and “Willy Wonka, Jr.”
6th thru 8th graders may participate in Mathcounts, a national math competition sponsored by the National Society of Professional Engineers and the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics. Students compete regionally against other western Montana schools with the opportunity to move on to state and national competitions if successful. Sussex School has produced some of the strongest teams in Montana over the years, often placing in the top three of the western region and winning multiple state trophies. Many Sussex students over the years have placed among the top four in the state, earning the right to compete on Team Montana at the National Competition.
Backcountry Skiing, climbing, and trainrunning are options for our older students looking for afterschool adventures.
Band & Music Ensembles
The band ensemble is designed to help students prepare for high school band and provide a more robust musical experience for those who love music. Sussex uses the “Standard of Excellence” method, and all band instruments are welcome. Both beginner and audition ensemble groups are available for students who are interested.
