Trinity School’s sixth grade is unique—a program designed specifically to support and challenge sixth graders as they adjust to the initial stages of adolescence. Sixth grade functions as a hinge, connecting Lower School to Middle School to ensure a smooth transition, and it features a special space, pace, and curriculum.
Beverlee Smith-Fendt, Trinity sixth grader teacher, observes of Trinity’s sixth grade, “Our sixth grade program prepares students well for the next level. This is an important period of time for these students, and we are pleased that we’ve been able to take the best of both worlds—childhood and adolescence—and create a sixth grade that addresses the emotional and social challenges of our young people as learning and academic expectations continue to move forward. We are thrilled to have sixth grade as the crown for Trinity’s Lower School.”
