As puberty approaches, your sixth grade student may be about to enter a time of inner turmoil. Alongside the physical changes, you can expect to see stronger objective reasoning and critical thinking skills. Sixth graders beginning middle school seek balance between their own individuality and their desire to belong.
Our curriculum responds by teaching Astronomy, Geometry, Business Math and the Roman Empire, which all emphasize unity and lawfulness. This resonates with the sixth grader’s desire for justice and order during a time of physical transformation and inner struggle.
