Autonomy & Advocacy
In 6th grade, we continue our students’ integration into our middle school in preparation for 7th and 8th grade. Though 6th graders continue with combined humanities, they are given more autonomy during the day to help develop a sense of ownership in their education (including choosing a single world language to focus on), and to learn to advocate for their personalized learning needs.
Students work on developing personal organization systems across all content areas and strengthening their collaboration skills, all through the continuing lens of a growth mindset. 6th graders end the year with the solid foundational skills and content knowledge needed to carry forward successfully and thrive as future leaders of our middle school.
