4th Grade
4th Grade Fourth grade classes are self-contained with the exception of math, social studies, and science. Classes are scheduled using a five day cycle.

The fourth grade student is entering a new scene... a new way of seeing things. School and studies inform fourth graders about the real world. Math can be used to solve shopping problems. Stories they read have real plots. The skills practiced in the earlier grades now can be put to use. Students can actively contribute to their own lives. They want to discover more!
