Lower School: Grades 4-5
In the fourth and fifth grades, we continue to build on the basic foundation that has been laid, while preparing students for the accelerated liberal arts curriculum in Middle School and Upper School.
In preparation for this, we teach students that with greater independence and opportunities, comes greater responsibilities. For instance, in fourth grade, students are given the chance to choose either French or Spanish as their foreign language, while also learning how to manage and track their homework by themselves.
Also starting in fourth grade, students with excellent academic achievement and conduct for each marking period are recognized in chapel and included on the Honor Roll or Dean’s List.
By fifth grade, students develop their organizational skills, by employing outlines for study and recall.
