Why a 6th Grade Division?
The concept of a 6th grade division is unique to Denver Academy. Because we know that the 6th grade year is vital to achieving successful readiness level for the transition to middle school, both academically and socially. This is why our DA 6th-graders get a division of their own which includes four homeroom teachers, teaching assistants and a division dean.
In order to prepare our students for middle school, each 6th-grade homeroom has a middle school buddy class that they connect with throughout the year.
