The Upper School
The Upper School consists of Grades 5, 6, 7 and 8. The Upper School is organized so that students are taught by a variety of teachers. This allows students the opportunity to learn from teachers who are specialists in certain areas. It also helps students to learn to organize themselves and their assignments.
Differentiated instruction continues in the Upper School. Flexible groups, compacted curriculum, and individual instruction are some of the ways we meet the needs of diverse learners. Multiple field trips and enrichment experiences are offered to the students in the Upper School. Technology plays an increased role in the lives of students in the Upper School. Ipads are assigned to each student and are available throughout the day.
Trips are offered to each grade in the Upper School. Grade 5 attend Environmental Camp, Grade 6 tours Boston and Plymouth, Grade seven visits Philadelphia and Grade 8 explores Washington, D.C.
