St. Paul employs a strong partnership between homeroom and co-curricular classrooms, as we believe a child’s education extends beyond the foundational pieces of reading, writing, and mathematics. Our strong co-curricular program includes fine arts, music, physical education, library, and STEAM programming, allowing children to expand their horizons and discover specific areas where they thrive.
Sixth Grade Electives
To prepare for the transition to middle school, St. Paul sixth-graders do not attend the full slate of co-curricular classes throughout the year. Instead, students are asked to rank their choice of electives and are assigned to one elective class per quarter, with the exception of Spanish and Strings, which are both semester-long courses. All students are required to take a leadership course one quarter, and P.E. and Library are still part of the core rotations.
