Grade 5

While Grade 5 students still spend the majority of their academic time in homerooms, they continue to build their skills as independent and collaborative workers and begin to develop the self-advocacy, organization, and study skills that will serve them well when they transition into our Upper School.

Grade 5 students begin to gain a global perspective and learn to view the world through an inclusive lens, focusing on connections across the curriculum, and culminating with International Night.
