Grades 5 and 6


Fifth and sixth graders bring high levels of energy to the classroom, along with the ability to engage in group discussions and a more rigorous academic setting. To take advantage of these growth patterns, our classroom is set up to encourage student collaboration and include a variety of learning styles so deeper learning can be achieved. By having a multi-grade classroom, we absorb more knowledge and strive to attain high academic levels in preparation for high school. Let's talk about how we can partner in the education of your child.
