Upper Elementary (9-12)

Upper elementary students gradually move from manipulative materials to a greater understanding of abstract concepts. Academic content grows more complex. Students have more opportunities to experience leadership within a broader community, to refine study and time management skills, as well as meet deadlines responsibly and utilize textbooks efficiently. Mastery learning assumes a new dimension in the upper elementary class as math assessments determine student progress. Upper elementary students also have opportunities for peer mentoring and tutoring.
