Welcome to the A+ Academy Maybury Elementary 4th, 5th & 6th Grades Science and Social Studies classes!

Educational standards describe what students should know and be able to do in each subject in each grade. In Ohio, the State Board of Education decides on the standards for all students, from kindergarten through high school. Information regarding specific standards can be downloaded from the following links:
