Grade 8

Grade eight has as its guiding principle the sense of completion of all that has gone before.  The students themselves are in the process of completing their passage from childhood into the territory of youth, where they will enjoy greater perspective, sharper powers of observation, and growing critical faculties.  From this new vantage, with their new capacities, the students can develop the scope and the perceptive abilities to recollect, and to connect, to see relationships – abilities which make it possible to build a comprehensive picture whether the subject is history, physics, or math.
