Grades 1 and 2 HGT at Southmoor have a unique experience as there are two grade levels in one room. Most instruction is small group ability-based and is supplemented with centers allowing for multi-level student interaction. These types of experiences allow students to learn from their peers. Students learn to use self-paced study guides and checklists to self-monitor work completion. Students are also first introduced to the concepts of Growth Mindset, Habits of Mind and other important social skills necessary for success in life.
