9th Grade Transition
The 9th Grade year is a crucial, transitional year for students. Each incoming 9th Grade class represents students from local middle schools, which means students often come in at varying readiness levels. It is TCS’s goal to be intentional with teaching the foundational skills necessary for being a successful TCS student during their 9th Grade year.
9th Grade Curriculum
The 9th grade teachers in the core disciplines meet regularly to be aware of each other’s curricular goals and student outcomes. Our philosophy is to support and push students so that they feel safe to challenge and risk academically. By the time they start sophomore year, we desire that students are well prepared in their thinking, reading, writing, research, and presentation skills. Ultimately, we believe that they will be more effective in their passions and areas of interest if they have their foundational skills in place.
