Middle School Courses

Our schedule operates on a 4-Day cycle. Each day starts at 7:20 am with a 20 minute advisory period daily. The rest of the day is broken up into 4 "blocks," each approximately 83 minutes long. 3rd block is 120 minutes long with 30 minutes designated for lunch. 4th Block ends at 2:06, and 5th block ends at 2:45, with busing available Monday-Thursday.

Within each grade level, there are two teams of teachers designated A and B.  Each team includes Math, Science, Social Studies, and ELA teachers, as well as special education teachers, reading specialists, and teaching assistants.

Throughout the course of the day, our students can expect to take the following courses with other students assigned to the same team.
