> PreK-8 Curriculum > Eighth Grade

The 8th grade curriculum introduces students to the concepts of civics through a study of the champions of freedom, federal, state, and local governments, and the economic system.

Civics for grade 8 asks students to witness their local government in action, explore issues affecting their state, and also become aware of national issues. Our experiential approach to understanding social issues includes practical activities such as community service projects and interviewing local community leaders. In English, students read seven classic novels while studying vocabulary drawn from the reading and concentrating on grammar and composition skills. The science curriculum focuses on the principles of physical science, including mass and matter, force, energy, sound, light, color, electricity, magnetism, and mechanics. The 8th grade math curriculum explores the advanced uses of fractions, decimals, and percents and then introduces beginning concepts of algebra in preparation for high school.
