One of the goals of our fifth and sixth grade is to transition the fifth graders into the middle school, face-paced, setting and mindset. The sixth graders become mentors to the fifth graders, helping make this transition easier. High academic standards are upheld and expected, helping the students to continue that transition on from elementary school to middle school.
