New opportunities for growth and adventure await a Quest student entering the third through fifth grades. At Quest Academy, one must travel up the stairs to enter the intermediate grades area. This is appropriate in a way, because third, fourth, and fifth grades are the bridge between being a younger type of student and the Middle School years. The journey across this bridge brings with it great independence and self awareness. With guidance, students learn to observe their growth and take more responsibility for their role in that growth. Executive functioning skills become more critical in preparing for Middle School and beyond. Building independence in work habits, organization, and homework study strategies are all developed throughout these grade levels.
There are also social, emotional, and academic changes which are unique to third, fourth, and fifth grade students. The depth of their academic journey intensifies, sparking new tangents to explore. A creative approach, with strong academic foundations and the use of critical thinking skills enable both teachers and students to reach beyond the bridge and soar. To take these risks, students are tapping into another area of their development, the strength of their character. At Quest, these traits are woven into the curriculum, not taught as a stagnant subject. Opportunities to lead and support others is also cultivated through our service learning projects and knight program.
