At Rivendell School most of our classes are organized using a form system. Small, multi-age classes give teachers greater flexibility to nurture children at different ability levels and allow students to progress at varying speeds in particular skills. Kindergarten and first grade are each a self-contained, single grade class, although they study the same units and may engage in cooperative activities. Students in Grades 2-3, 4-5, and 7-8 are placed in forms that incorporate two traditional grade levels. 

Classes at Rivendell are organized as follows:

            Form 1    Kindergarten and Grade 1 (separate classrooms)
            Form 2    Grades 2 and 3 (combined classes)
            Form 3    Grades 4 and 5 (combined classes)
            Grade 6      Grade 6 (single classroom)
            Form 4    Grades 7 and 8 (combined Humanities classes)
