Secondary Curriculum


Middle school is a time of transition from elementary school to high school.  Middle school students, like elementary school students, do not receive graduation credit.  They do continue to earn letter grades and begin to establish a GPA (Grade Point Average).  Middle school students no longer have recess time or spend their day with one or two grade-level teachers. Students move between classes and meet with teachers who are content specific.

The middle school calendar year is broken into trimesters with non-core classes meeting on either odd or even days only.  Core classes are Math, Science, English Language Arts, and Social Studies. The base middle schedule is found below:
