Upper Core Teachers
The Upper Core is comprised of the Fourth through Sixth Grades.
Upper Core students (also known as Ponderers) participate in a workshop approach to teaching and are provided the opportunity to dissect or master a subject, re-invent and play with the elements that make it up, as well as struggle to produce something they can understand and connect with.
Goals and intentions for students are collaborative between students, parents, and teachers. Students keep learning portfolios and use meta-cognitive practice and reflective learning to deepen their understanding.
