Sixth grade is the gateway to pre-adolescence. The curriculum offers firm academic grounding in math, composition, and science, along with memorable depictions of cultural cause and effect: Arthurian legend and the rise and fall of the Roman Empire, medieval society and the Crusades. Students begin to structure and participate in scientific experiments on light, heat, magnetism and electricity while the study of mathematics incorporates business math and the principles of economics.
As middle schoolers, students in the sixth grade join either the Strings Orchestra or the Recorder Ensemble and participate in the Middle School Choir; experiences that enrich the school year through multiple musical performances.
