DURING THEIR TIME IN FAR HILLS COUNTRY DAY SCHOOL'S GRADE 7, YOUR CHILD WILL......GAIN RESILIENCE.
Through our advising program, students explore how navigating middle school requires creativity and resilience. Identifying areas for growth with their advisor helps students set goals for each trimester.
...PREPARE TO BE A LEADER.
An introduction to ethics and the development of leadership skills takes place during weekly Wellness classes. These lessons and reflections allow students to assume leadership roles the following year in Grade 8.
...OWN THE WRITING PROCESS.
Anchor texts explored in English class will launch writing projects, both analytical and creative. Students take ownership of the writing process at this level, engaging in peer editing and revising with each draft. The important skills of developing a thesis statement, utilizing research skills to access primary and secondary sources, annotating, and properly citing information will also come into play as they prepare a History research paper on a chosen topic.
...CONTINUE THE ADVENTUROUS SPIRIT.
Far Hills Country Day School's seventh graders embrace adventure. They take to the high elements of the Ropes Course and go away for an overnight Adventure Trip. These experiences reinforce confidence, resilience, teamwork, and problem solving skills.
