For students in grades K-3, we offer homeroom classes that provide them with the opportunity to form classroom communities. We celebrate diversity and individuality in these classes, extending this approach into content area courses.
Our 4th and 5th grade students follow a semi-departmentalized schedule (4th) and fully departmentalized schedule (5th) to help them transition and prepare for middle school. These students have a designated homeroom teacher and core group, but they travel to individual subject-area teachers for each of their courses throughout the day. This structure enables them to collaborate with all their grade level peers, while gaining valuable experience and preparation for the schedule they will experience in 6th grade.
