Our intermediate grade levels are marked by a time of transition as they prepare for the second half of their Highlands journey. Students in grades 4 and 5 are prepared academically, socially and emotionally to face the challenges of early adolescence. During these critical years, deeper knowledge is developed across core subject areas including language arts, science, mathematics, and social studies.
Social Emotional Learning is also emphasized, as teachers instill the values of responsibility, citizenship, teamwork, leadership, and integrity and help students build the skills needed to apply those values to everyday interactions. Individual attention and caring support help students thrive as they engage an increasingly demanding curriculum and discover their unique gifts.
