Students study many different subjects and sometimes they change classes. Clubs, Activities, and After-School Programs There are more activities and programs for students, both in and out of school. More Independence and More Responsibility Students have more freedom and more choices in the upper elementary grades. They are also expected to be more responsible and trustworthy.
