Grade 4

In Grade 4 year, students transition to Upper School with confidence.
As Grade 4 students join the upper school, they participate in a modified departmentalized program with two co-teachers for homeroom, language arts, and social studies, and two additional co-teachers for math. Studying California's history provides many avenues to explore government, geography and the people that have historically and currently inhabit our state. A capstone trip to Sacramento brings the social studies curriculum to life.
Interscholastic Athletics Program
Grade 4 also marks the beginning of JTD’s interscholastic athletics program.
All students have an opportunity to participate in teams each season. They are also able to join a variety of clubs including Student Council and The Greyhound Gazette, the School’s newspaper.
