About 6th Grade

The sixth grade program at Marie Murphy School is based upon elements of the self-contained fifth grade program at Avoca West School, while introducing students to aspects of the middle school and the secondary schedule. Throughout the week, the Sixth Grade Team, a professional learning community, meets to discuss, share, plan, and make decisions in efforts to provide more seamless learning among the various content areas. They share a vision, work and learn collaboratively, and participate in decision making as part of their commitment to student learning.
