The 4th Grade experience is one of excitement, wonder, and noticeable advancement. There is an even greater focus on experiential learning and hands-on, cross-curricular units. Students do a deep dive into projects focusing on history, heritage, and the environment. The teaching team, along with their students, builds a community in which everyone treats each other with kindness and respect.
