Grade Descriptions

Sixth grade is a year of transition from elementary to the middle school. To help ease this transition, the sixth grade is semi-departmentalized. For the first time, students change classes during the school day. English, reading, writing, math, science, social studies, and geography are taught. Accelerated Reader and STAR Reading are included in the reading program. Students take beginning band. Students work with the band director to choose an instrument and are given instruction in playing that instrument. Each student is assigned a locker which is located in the same hall as the classrooms. Opportunities for extracurricular activities include football, basketball, cheerleading, baseball, and softball.

Students enrolled in Algebra I in the eighth grade will receive high school credit if they earn at least a B (80) in that class for the year. The numerical grade received for these high school credits earned in the eighth grade will not be included when calculating the student’s high school GPA (Grade Point Average). Students earning an Algebra I credit in the eighth grade will still be required to take one math class each of the four years in high school. Students earning a C (79) or lower in Algebra I in the eighth grade will be required to repeat Algebra I in the ninth grade.
