5th Grade

academics grade5 studentsOur fifth grade program bridges the gap between elementary grades and junior high.  Students learn to read for the specific purpose of gaining information.  They develop critical thinking skills and learn how to use a variety of resources.  Respect for the Earth is interwoven throughout the curriculum.  Time management and organization are key fundamentals stressed this year.

The fifth-grades classrooms are located in the middle school wing of the building.  Students have lockers for their belongings, and they get a taste of middle school, although their classes are self contained, and their schedules are separate from the middle school.
