5th Grade English
The fifth grade English curriculum uses the study of the 1800s to produce learners with strong skills in reading comprehension, literature study, writing, grammar, vocabulary, and spelling.

5th Grade Math
The fifth grade mathematics program first focuses on the review and mastery of basic math skills and then explores the role of mathematics in our daily lives, the use of problem solving strategies, and the realms of abstract thinking.

5th Grade Science
In 5th grade science, students investigate environmental science, weather, forces and motion, and chemistry; with particular emphasis on lower-middle school transition, stewardship, collaboration, and the continued development of a student’s ability to learn from feedback.
