Students build upon their love of learning and capacity for responsibility during Grade 6. The teaching team aims to nurture students' skills in academics, athletics, and the arts and guide students toward becoming organized and independent learners. Our teachers support our sixth graders as they develop the confidence to take risks, express themselves creatively throughout our rich and diverse curriculum, and grow to be both leaders and good citizens.
Special events in Grade 6 include a community-building fieldtrip in the fall to an outdoor adventure center, a "Mission to Mars" fieldtrip at the Christa McAuliffe Center in the winter, and an overnight trip to Project Oceanology and the Mystic Aquarium in the spring.
