Grammar is taught consistently in grades 1-12 in such a way that its complexity increases as the students mature. This sequential curriculum builds from the recognition of parts of speech, to analysis of the uses of nouns and pronouns, parsing of verbs, identification and labeling of phrases and clauses, and extensive diagramming of sentences. Upper School students take departmental tests throughout the year so that they come to have a firm grasp of traditional English grammar.
