Grades 4-5 at BASIS Charter Schools
Far from the wide-eyed children they were in kindergarten, yet not quite middle schoolers experiencing a new sense of independence, students in grades 4–5 often find themselves in a state of in-between. At BASIS Charter Schools, we consider grades 4–5 to be transition years, and we scaffold our approach with students accordingly. Students begin to increase their academic independence, require less guidance from teachers, master more challenging content, and become accountable for their work. They even begin to research, plan, and revise larger projects on their own. Students in grades 4–5 at BASIS Charter Schools learn essential skills that will help them achieve success in middle school and high school.
