Sixth Grade represents the first year of Middle School at Sierra Canyon, and students assume the role of leaders of the Lower Campus. As students have different teachers for each subject for the first time, they experience The Big Four in different manners couched in more sophisticated contexts. These values also come with more mature expectations, and teachers guide students into socially responsible agents of positive action and models for the younger grade levels. As this is the final year before moving on to the Upper Campus, The Big Four, the Lower School Code, are also developed in terms of Sierra Canyon’s Core Values
. Honesty translates seamlessly into the core value of Integrity as social and academic expectations mature; Responsibility is conveyed and understood as striving for Excellence and continually developing Independence; Kindness edifies the strongest pillars of our Community; and, Respect, actively cultivated and exercised throughout the elementary grades, is realized through Perspective, contributing to the fulfillment of one of our school’s greatest strengths, its diversity.
