Upper Elementary (9-12) Program
Just as in the other program levels at WMS, the foundation of the Upper Elementary experience is the social curriculum, which is based on the principles of Responsive Classroom. The goal is that all children are known, find a comfortable routine, respect each other, and work through any difficulties that may arise. It is an opportunity to learn about other and discover that everyone is different and has something to offer the group.
The 9-12 Program is where students find their voice and become more independent in asking questions and meeting their needs. Though teachers and parents support students in their transition, they encourage the children to approach adults and fellow students to get what they need.
