If your student is new to Writing Symphony, we recommend enrolling in our Level Courses based on their current grade level: Melody (Grade 1-2), Harmony (Grade 2-3), Largo (Grades 3-4), Echo (Grades 4-5), Presto (Grades 6-7), or Andante (Grades 8-10) series. Because we use a unique teaching methodology that isn’t offered in mainstream English Language Arts classes, it’s important that your student begin at the start of a level. Students are initially placed into each class based on their grade-level and familiarity with the Writing Symphony methodology. In some cases, students may take a placement test to determine the appropriate starting level.
Our teachers will always recommend that your student build a strong foundation at first rather than move too quickly. Mastery of core concepts is critical to our methodology and why our students produce such clear results. If you feel your student is not sufficiently challenged after the first three class sessions, our teachers will be happy to discuss an alternative placement.
