UPPER ELEMENTARY

In Upper Elementary, students continue their exploration of a rich and rigorous curriculum and further develop their reason, intellect, and capacity for critical thinking. Students’ emerging independence complements a broadening curricular scope and an increased orientation to the outside world, and coincides with a move toward more complex and abstract work and increased opportunities for leadership and collaboration.
