Grade 6

Grade 6 marks an important transition for students ― into Middle School. Students spread their wings by moving beyond a single classroom into different learning spaces like science labs. As they enter this new and exciting phase, students take on a larger course load, become more independent, and begin to explore their passions and interests with greater focus.

Dwight launched a leadership program for students in grades 6, 7, and 8, which took shape in a variety ways for each grade level. Sixth graders were challenged to improvise and collaborate on a special dinner for their parents. Click here to learn more about this unique project!
