In Laurel’s Grades 3-5, innovative teachers design small classes that dare each girl to step up, to challenge herself, to reach beyond what she already knows. We partner with parents to celebrate each girl as we propel her through the remarkable transformation from curious Third Grader to confident Fifth Grader.
In Grades 3-5, our interdisciplinary curriculum is inspired by findings from Laurel’s Center for Research on Girls. Students are guided to make informed guesses about how the world works then test their hunches with experimentation. Grade-level themes shape deep investigations of big ideas and help girls add strength to their understanding by connecting learning in each subject.
