The eighth grade curriculum is designed to help the students know the modern world: from history to science to literature; the aim is to help the 13 and 14 year old students feel at home in the present world, with their own emerging individualities. They become familiar with the world through history, literature, geography, and science, and have achieved a level of expertise in various skills that allows them to walk through the world with confidence. They will usually have regained the emotional balance they had lost in the sixth or seventh grade, and will end the eighth grade year filled with gratitude for the past eight years and enthusiasm for the coming challenges of high school.
