Welcome to 5th Grade!
In fifth grade we pride ourselves on being a community of learners. Our approach to learning is student driven, with emphasis on student inquiry, discoveries and connections. Teachers expect 5th graders to take more responsibility for their education, asking questions when they do not understand something and devising strategies for learning that work best for them. The behavioral and academic requirements take another step up as the children are expected to think and be responsible for themselves. Self-control is stressed as the children learn to monitor their own behaviors as they move towards middle school.
