Students at this level are prepared to tackle more varied and rigorous activities. Increasingly, the academic program leads them to become more involved with the rest of the WMS community and to take on larger roles and more responsibilities within the classroom.
The history, geography, and science curriculum provides still more opportunities to connect with the WMS community. Each year the students focus on one historic period, thoroughly learning its geography, culture, literature, and science. This culminates in a cultural fair where students share their knowledge with peers and parents, and express their creativity by dressing in period clothes, decorating their exhibit booths, and sometimes cooking meals from the era.
Please see the Upper Elementary Handbook for more information on the expectations of students in this level.
