8th Grade

Students in eighth grade stand with one foot in middle school and the other in high school. The vigorous program at HDS challenges them to further refine and solidify skills learned in previous years, while also stretching themselves to meet higher expectations in preparation for the next steps in their learning. In addition to an increased rigor in curriculum, students are asked to assume greater responsibility and independence, and are called upon to be leaders and role models in the school community.
