Developing skills and connecting with others is a large part of Grade 7
Students in grade 7 apply the knowledge they have gained from their first year of middle school to a variety of new situations. They are challenged with more difficult content and tasked with more independent projects to demonstrate understanding. Advisory groups complete service project expectations during the year. Students also are encouraged to join after school activities including sports teams, creative experiences, and clubs that enrich their personal and social lives.
By the time our students become seventh graders, most of them are very well settled into school, and are forming new relationships with their peers based on common interests and activities. Some other students start their time with us at HIS as seventh graders, and we understand that this can be challenging. It is a time of change for everyone! Our teachers and counselor are always available to support children through this process, and within a few days, most students feel at home. Our on-going communication with parents remains a feature of the Upper School experience, we continue to welcome them to our regular information evenings and coffee mornings. Here, parents can learn more about topics such as MYP assessment and reporting, ManageBac, language development and how life is likely to change with a new adolescent in the house!
