At St. Symphorosa...

Fourth grade is a wonderfully exciting year. Students deepen their skills to prepare for the transition into junior high. Students learn to make connections to new material while grasping more complex concepts across

the curriculum.

 

Students learn the explicit skills necessary to succeed in the 21st Century, such as collaboration, creativity, communication, and critical thinking.

 

Fourth grade is focused on teaching students to become virtuous, responsible, independent learners.
