3rd - 5th Grade

Teachers will build on basic skills students learned in earlier grades to help students apply higher-level thinking to all subjects. Improved reading comprehension opens doors to a deeper understanding of ideas, topics and events. Socially, children begin to internalize values like respect and cooperation, and learn more personal responsibility. Most importantly, students will build the skills they need to succeed in middle school.

Learning to read becomes reading to learn. As fluency and comprehension improve, students learn to make inferences and draw conclusions. Children write more complex stories, essays and poetry. Improving their speaking skills, children present reports and narratives in small group and classroom settings. Our teachers use tools like Open Court Reading & Step Up To Writing to support instruction in line with state standards.

We're More than Academics

We promote an enriched learning environment because it's a significant part of what differentiates us. We bring virtues such as respect, perseverance, compassion, and courage to every detail of our academic focus. These characteristics are essential to the success of young students today — and to the adults they become tomorrow. 

  • We created a curriculum specifically around Moral Focus.
  • We celebrate a “virtue of the month” every month.
  • Our students create a class contract where students agree how to treat their teacher and each other.
  • Students are recognized and celebrated for how they live out Moral Focus every day.

Parent

I love the emphasis on moral focus each month. Not only is my child receiving an education, but you are also teaching her qualities to be a good person.

Confidence Leads to Student Excellence

Pembroke Academy gives every child the right challenges at the the right time. This allows us to create an enriched learning environment that raises both expectations and academic excellence. When this environment is combined with moral focus, parental partnership, and student responsibility, the end result is really just the beginning toward a lifetime of success.
