4th Grade

4th Grade is the final year of St. Mark’s Lower School, and this year prepares our students to leave the Lower School with an understanding of their own learning strengths and needs. 4th Grade students are expected to be independent with many routines and assignments, and they are taught to use resources and materials to help themselves. 4th Grade students enjoy opportunities to apply what they have learned throughout their years in Lower School to new tasks or challenges, and real-world situations. Teachers support and coach students through these experiences, making sure to tailor their guidance to each student.
