At The Sage School, the Junior Division includes the third through fifth grades. At our school for academically gifted learners, students thrive in an atmosphere of intellectual curiosity that includes social interaction with their age-group peers. One way we foster this environment in the Junior Division is by creating groups based not just on age, but also on academic and social similarities among students. We are firmly committed to the development of the whole child and the idea that we can get to know each of our students as individuals. While students are challenged in the Junior Division, teaching occurs in a safe, caring, and nurturing environment. Students thrive when appropriate challenge is coupled with compassionate teaching and personal relationships. We are able to develop individual relationships because each Junior classroom consists of two full-time teachers working as a partnership. Class sizes are limited to 18 students, so the student-to-teacher ratio never exceeds 9 to 1. Junior Division students are happy, hard-working, and intellectually curious; we are consistently amazed by their enthusiasm and creativity.
