6-8 year olds are usually admitted into the lower grades, that is, grades 1-3. In lower grade, students are faced with a new challenge, a new opportunity and a whole new learning experience. Concepts at this stage are presented according to a spiraling curriculum, meaning that they are revisited during each year of Lower Elementary in greater depth and all concepts are firstly presented practically and to stimulate the imagination of the children , and then gradually to abstract materials as students mature intellectually. There are many important lessons your child will learn including: Phonics and Language, Arithmetic, Spelling and Poetry, Reading and Comprehension, Writing, Ghanaian History and French. An amazing feature for lower grade is that, students begin to put down their own opinions and thoughts on paper. Another feature which is an icing on the cake is the Help Class where students get a 100 per cent attention from the Teacher on lessons they couldn't comprehend. Students also get the opportunity to air their views and suggest possible solutions to make the classroom and the entire school a fun place to be !
Upper grade consists of 4th, 5th, and 6th grades usually for 9 - 12 year olds. At the Upper Elementary, pupils are transitioning using deep thoughts and higher levels of research. Subjects OHAA offers at the upper elementary classes include; Arithmetic(Maths), Language Art(English), Science and Health, History (American and Ghanaian), Reading, Spelling and Vocabulary, French, Creative Arts, as well as extra Curricular Activities (Poetry, Sports,Music).
