Intermediate Grades 4 - 5
At Saint Matthew School, the Intermediate grades are years of transition between the elementary grades and the middle school grades. It is here that the foundation laid in the elementary years takes root, and students become increasingly independent and can apply what they are learning to make new connections. Academic material becomes deeper in content, and students begin to change classes in the core subjects of math, science, language arts and social studies for the first time. Students are challenged with long-term projects and take responsibility for their own learning as they acquire greater study and organizational skills. These are years of great growth in maturity, academics and self-reliance.
