The Upper School : Grades 4-6
St. Thomas’s Day School’s Upper School program further strengthens fundamental skills and deepens conceptual understanding through interactive learning across curriculum areas. We encourage responsibility to self and others. Students in grades 4 through 6 are entrusted with leadership opportunities and greater involvement in the community with the goal to give each child the tools to face the future with self-confidence and an understanding of the global environment.
