Academics

Sunset Ridge School provides students in grade four through eight a rich, forward-thinking, and comprehensive academic program.  All students in all grades have Social Studies, Science, Mathematics, and English Language Arts as their core subjects. In fourth and fifth grades, students are in homeroom groups for the majority of their day.  In sixth through eighth grades, students transition in mixed groups throughout their core subjects.


All grades fourth through eighth also have Spanish instruction.  In grades four and five, Spanish is every other day. In grades six, seven, and eight, it is provided on a daily basis.


We have a block schedule that allows for changing the amount of time students receive instruction in specific areas.  For example, if there is a science lab in 8th grade, students might have a long science block but shorter math block on that day.


In addition to our rigorous core program, all students engaging in Physical Education, Music, Art, and Computer Science.  Physical education takes place at all grade levels for forty minutes daily. Health instruction is also provided through PE. Music, Art, and Computer science are on a rotating basis in each grade.  We also provide a Communications track in seventh and eighth grade.
