5th/6th Grade

Our fifth and sixth grade classes are taught in a combination of traditional and multi-age models.  Both grades are working on the same subjects, but each individual student is working at his or her own level.

Some of our goals in sixth grade are to help kids with fractions, decimals, percents, graphs, and geometry. Our science lessons explore the world of volcanoes, earthquakes, the nervous system and immune system, and chemistry. Sixth-graders also read engaging novels, write book reports, research papers, and give speeches.
