Third Grade in Glendale/North Phoenix Area
At the third-grade level, many children begin developing their social identities and become more conscious of the concepts they’re learning. This is a pivotal time in childhood education—one that we take very seriously at Canyon Pointe Academy. Our third-grade curriculum is designed to engrain core concepts and introduce advanced learning to students, pushing them to succeed in an environment that’s accommodating and rewarding.
Our third-grade instructor is Christina Ozuna. Her experience teaching elementary school in Glendale/North Phoenix area allows her to interact with students at a level they understand, and that empowers them to do their best. Students are exposed to advanced elements of math, language arts, science, and social studies.

Third graders are introduced to word problems and multi-step problems, as well as contextual math in real-world applications. They’ll build on graphing learned in second grade to further understand the relationship of data and presentation.
