Fourth grade is a year of transition. Each year we welcome five new students to each class. Students are expected to become much more independent and responsible for their learning. We have designed units of inquiry that encourage development of the IB Essential Skills (research, thinking, communicating, social, and self management.) as well as helping students mastery of the state standards for 4th grade. Students enjoy time traveling through early American history, exploring the solar system, and contemplating the future.
