3rd – 5th
Grades 3rd through 5th are designed to extend the basic skills laid down in the earlier grades so as to prepare students for the upper grades (middle school) curriculum. More emphasis is placed on reading comprehension along with math concepts and applications.
An older Open Court reading series now forms the basis of the reading program. Challenging comprehension materials reflective of the STAAR objectives are used to supplement the reading texts and to prepare students for the all-important state tests.
Beyond the “three R’s”
Science and social studies receive more emphasis in grades 3rd through 5th.
Students also attend the computer lab on a daily basis.
