3rd Grade

“Every kid in 3rd Grade is a student and a teacher.”  —3rd Grade Student

Third Graders at The San Francisco School:

  • Visit parks with different ecosystems of the Bay Area including an overnight trip to the Marin Headlands.
  • Hear from Ohlone people about cultural traditions and concerns. Write imaginatively and persuasively  about topics related to Bay Area indigenous peoples.
  • Read stories that take place in the places where we live whether it’s a contemporary setting about redwood forests or a mythological one about snakes in the Santa Cruz mountains. 

Whether building models about multiplication, reading Ohlone creation myths, or performing a musical, 3rd Graders are immersed in ways to show their growing understanding throughout the year.
