Dear Parents,

Welcome to James H. Boyd Intermediate School! Our staff strives to provide students in grades three through five with a positive, supportive learning environment. Programs and activities are designed to engage children with diverse interests and learning styles in high quality learning experiences.  Here is the link to curriculum guides for grades 3-5:

In addition to a challenging academic program, we believe in teaching the whole child.  We support student creativity through writing, enrichment activities, our maker space, character education and the power of read alouds.  I have a link to my read aloud video library on the top of this page.
