Sixth Grade

Grade 6 students will participate in the Sixth Grade Transition Program, designed to support students transitioning to the upper school. This program will include extended learning periods for every student in both English language arts and math. During the extended periods, individual students will receive the support and challenge they need in these subjects. The program will also include a focus on organizational and study skills.

The first trimester will also feature a World Languages Exploratory class in which students explore their choices for World Language study in order to identify which language to pursue for the duration of their Upper School experience.

Finally, a co-teaching model will be used in sixth grade math classrooms, with special educators and math content specialists teaming to increase individualized attention for every student. In addition to providing individual challenge, these extended periods will help upper schools close gaps for students entering from the variety of CPS elementary programs, and ensure that all upper school students are prepared to access the rigors of the Grade 7 program.
