Upper School Grades 4-6
Our graduates enter middle school knowing how to think critically, respect themselves and others, and conduct themselves in service leadership roles.
Comprised of Grades 4-6 the Upper School at Riverside Presbyterian Day School provides a rigorous, enriched program of academic excellence and service learning. As students move from childhood to early adolescence, they gain opportunities to experience a middle school model learning schedule. Each Upper School class is taught by a subject area teacher highly trained in their expertise. Students move in a relaxed yet responsible manner to each of their core classes. These include English, Mathematics, History, Language Arts, Spanish and Science. Upper School students gain competency with technology and on-line textbooks as well as culminate projects. The Upper School schedule includes daily Physical Education and recess. Additionally Upper School students attend weekly specialized courses including Art, Music, Drama and Bible and STEAM. Chinese is also offered as an optional course.
Upper school students demonstrate the RPDS Graduate Traits through daily school service, weekly chapel leadership and community service leadership projects. Upper School students’ commitment to service learning is invaluable to living the mission of Riverside Presbyterian Day School.
