After School Programs
|Our Grades 3-6 curriculum is based on our belief that a strong foundation for freedom and responsibility is established in these early years. Early on, children learn that with freedom comes an ability to take risks and to be responsible for their own learning. Children are given choices, and are expected to behave in a responsible way toward others and their environment. Respectful relationships among students and teachers foster an atmosphere of care, open communication, and trust that influences the student beyond the school day. In addition to the core subjects, students participate weekly in chapel, science lab, computer lab, library class, music, art literacy, and physical education.
Project-Based, Experiential Learning
Our 3rd-4th grade program offers students the opportunity to participate in many exciting projects throughout the year, from researching historical characters to perform in our Wax Museum Performance, to understanding life on the Oregon Trail., 5th grade students delve deep into experiencing Egyptian and Medieval history. And, of course, outdoor school remains the ultimate experiential learning experience for our 6thgraders. As you can see, West Hills Christian School students experience a wide variety of lessons, both in and out of the classroom. Students take a variety of field trips to places such as Fort Vancouver, Tryon Creek Park, Fort Lewis all to help support what they are learning in the classroom.
Apply for a Place
Applications for 3-6 grades begin in October. We are looking forward to a new class of sixth grade students. There will be a limited amount of space in Grades 3-5. Placement will be determined by a number of factors, returning students will be accepted first, and then additional students. Sixth grade placement secures your place for the following years.
