The Upper Elementary students in grades 4-5 transition between Lower Elementary self-contained classrooms and departmentalization. Students change classrooms for the core subjects, have several teachers during the day, and have lockers. The Upper Elementary curriculum continues a strong academic focus through the use of both the A BEKA curriculum and the Story Town reading series.
All students in K-5 are tested each spring using the Stanford Achievement Test 10 which compares our students with students on a national basis. CP students consistently score 1-3 grades levels above their national median grade level.
