2nd and 3rd grades

In Form 2, the two-year integral curriculum uses a theme for the year to tie together a series of units that are approximately six weeks in length. These units allow for rich discussions and experiences that ensure that history, science, math, the arts, communication, and religion all inform the student’s exploration of the topic.

In alternating years Form Two follows the themes of “The American Adventure” and “The Heroic Quest.”

 •  The First Americans: Living with the Land
