Dana Hall School, the all-girls day and boarding school for grades 6-12, announced Wednesday that it will be adding fifth grade to its Middle School for the 2016-17 academic year.
The fifth-grade curriculum “will focus on foundational academic skills and feature an interdisciplinary approach that combines traditional concepts with opportunities for experiential learning, both on Dana’s vast campus and in educationally rich locations across New England,” according to the school.
Bringing in fifth graders will enable the school “to reach girls at a crucial age in their development,” according to Caroline Erisman, Dana Hall’s Head of School, in a statement.
Located inside Dana Hall’s Middle School building, the fifth grade classroom will be situated in a dedicated first floor room.
The School will begin accepting applications in September 2015. There will be several upcoming events for those interested to learn more, including an informal coffee this spring for area parents, and open house events that will take place in the fall.
