The Vanguard Board of Trustees met today and voted to add a 6th grade to the Vanguard Campus. The Board Committee of Matt Morrison, Shanna Mattson, Suzanne Kelly,
Emily Offill, Libby Starr and Bill Borg have studied this option for the past 7 months. The Board of Trustees voted to add a 6th grade class of 20 students with two dedicated teachers for that grade level to our campus for Fall of 2023.
As many schools in the area have realigned middle school to start in 6th grade, Vanguard is adding 6th grade to serve our community and continue our focus on excellence in education.
The mission of the 6th program:
To effectively prepare students for Vanguard’s 7th grade focusing on hands-on-learning in mathematics, writing, reading, science The 6th grade will instill time management and study skills; while focusing on group projects and intellectual curiosity in and out of the classroom through electives.
6th Grade students will also have exposure to the many extracurricular programs including Robotics, Coding, Drama, Art, Languages, Athletics, Clubs and more.
6th Grade students will have a separate portable building for core classes
