Wheeling Country Day School offers Sixth Grade for children ten and eleven years old. Students in Sixth Grade are introduced to Deep Dives – project-based learning and truly learn everywhere at our Wheeling Park Branch Campus.
We unlock the power in our Sixth Graders to learn and enjoy learning at our Middle School Branch Campus at Wheeling Park.
In Sixth Grade, we continue to provide core foundations in math and language arts, while introducing them to project-based learning that challenges the students to apply all subjects (math, science, history, global studies and more) as they work together with each and on their own.
Teachers work with the students to find problems and work through a proven framework to solve the problem by using a variety of skills, such as (math, science, engineering, reading, and more) to find their own way to solving real-life problems.
Our before and aftercare programs are designed to help the student and the parent. Drop your students off early or pick them up a bit later and feel comfortable knowing they are safe and still learning.
Edge at Wheeling Country Day School is an on-campus instruction center for students with language-based learning differences.
For students ready to graduate from Sixth Grade, Wheeling Country Day School offers exceptional Seventh Grade education.
