Check out a sample schedule and class descriptions below. Please note that academic and enrichment periods vary by grade level.
Instruction targets defining operations and vocabulary while developing computational, thinking and problem-solving skills.
English - Language Arts
Content focuses on literature comprehension and fluency (decoding) through direct instruction beginning with learning how to learn and advancing to applying these skills on challenging assignments. Spelling, vocabulary building, grammar, and written expression are addressed.
Students in fifth and eighth grades study American History and how decisions, events, laws, and wars were a result of the culture, knowledge, and technology of the day. Sixth and seventh grades explore world cultures. Through the study of civilizations, students gain an appreciation of how people use what they learn through history.
