Grade 6

Upon entering middle school, students in grade 6 are introduced to a variety of courses and experiences.

They are tasked with learning many new topics, demonstrating mastery of content and skills, and then applying that learning to a wide range of new situations

Students will move to different classrooms during the day and change class groups and teachers. Each student demonstrates attainment and learning in each of the subject classes. Students also are expected to join after school activities including sports teams, creative experiences, and clubs that enrich their personal and social lives.

Assessment Practices

In Grade 6 classes, teachers assign a variety of types of assessments including quizzes, presentations, and in class essays to check students’ understanding. Students are marked against the MYP criterion on summative assessments such as tests, projects, or essays.

Grade 6 schedule

Students take 8 classes within a weekly schedule. Core courses meet three times a week for 70 minutes each session. Students take Music, PE, and Art or Design twice a week. Students also have a Health class, an Advisory session, a Project Period, and an Activity Period once a week where they interact with advisors and develop their learning skills appropriately.

The information below demonstrates the learning experiences available to students.

If you are a Grade 6 parent and have questions about your child’s learning or classwork, we encourage you to communicate directly with the classroom teacher. If you wish to discuss social issues or any other concerns, please contact your child’s Advisor or Grade Level Leader.
