The 5th-8th Grade Experience
Teachers provide an encouraging and engaging environment for 5th – 8th grade students.
Our English Language Arts teachers want students to read and write well, so they emphasize grammar, writing, and vocabulary, and teach cursive handwriting. Many of our eighth-grade students move into the advanced English class their freshman year at Marshalltown High School.
In their social studies classes, students study both United States, world, and ancient history, and complete Ramsey Solutions’ Foundations in Personal Finance. They also study and get to know missionaries and the missions field and hear from local professionals about their fields of work.
Frequently Asked Questions

My child has a learning disability. Will he/she be accepted?
This depends on your child’s specific needs. At this time the school does not have the staff or resources to accommodate more severe learning or behavioral difficulties. However, our Head of School would be happy to discuss your specific situation during a consultation.
My child has dyslexia. Are you able to serve him/her?
Yes, as space allows. Teachers are trained to teach children with symptoms of dyslexia and other language processing disorders, enabling these children to become successful readers.
