Head of Lower School
The fourth grade is a true year of growth and change within the Primary Years Program at Dwight School. Students continue to build knowledge and confidence across disciplines, delving into topics like ancient civilizations, force and motion, belief systems and natural resources. Fourth graders build collaboration skills while practicing Learner Profile traits, such as being reflective and thoughtful communicators. Students learn that education crosses subject boundaries, applying and enhancing math skills during Units of Inquiry and using knowledge gained during Units of Inquiry for reading and writing sessions. Learning experiences extend beyond the classroom and include exciting trip opportunities that enhance topics covered during the year. This balanced approach to learning helps cultivate an adaptive and engaged classroom of students.
