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