2nd Grade Learner Pathway
In their second grade year at Allen-Stevenson, boys are eager to take on new responsibilities to demonstrate their growing independence.
Now comfortable with the school environment, they take on the role of “big kid” and are ready for opportunities to expand their learning. The teacher remains a touchstone for comfort and reassurance while boys take bigger risks academically and socially.
Second Grade is also when we see boys grow in their ability to focus longer on tasks. Allen-Stevenson second graders are conscientious workers who take pride in their finished work. They enjoy sharing their learning with peers and teachers because it allows them to showcase the new knowledge and understanding acquired by deeply engaging in the learning process.
