Primary and Upper Elementary
All core subjects in our Primary and Upper Elementary grades take place in self-contained classrooms; all core subjects are taught by the homeroom teacher. Students change teachers only when attending enrichment classes. Within the individual classrooms, however, various groupings of students are made possible through the employment of the classroom assistant. Students are grouped for various projects, math or reading levels, interests, etc. when such groupings are to the students’ academic advantage.
In our Junior High, students go to different teachers for the core subjects of math, science, english/literature, and social studies. This allows our Junior High teachers to provide consistent sequential material leading to mastery of these core subjects before graduation from St. Agnes. Each homeroom teacher teaches the Religion curriculum to their grade level class.
