Benefits of Multi-Graded Classrooms
Every day, students of different ages are given opportunities to work together side-by-side and learn from one another what it means to step up academically and socially.
Each year half of the students are new to the room and half are veterans. The older students serve as mentors and leaders to their new classmates.
Learners and leaders, prepared to take on the academic challenges ahead
When multi-graded students share a classroom they form friendships with other children in their grade as well as in the grades above and below. In this way, students quickly get to know everyone in the school.
“We love the multi-grade classrooms, especially since our child has often been more drawn to older children academically, but younger kids socially. Aurora is a place where the teachers really know our child well.” – Aurora parent
