The start of middle school can be an anxious time for students and their parents. There is
excitement at a new beginning, the chance to meet new friends, have more class options and become more independent right alongside the stress of the unknown and the often negative reputation of “middle school.”
How does the middle school schedule work?
A middle school student's schedule will have 6 classes per day. Students will go to their "core" classes (language arts, social studies, science and math) each day. The other two periods of the day may change each quarter or semester. Some of the classes change at the end of a quarter, or at the end of a semester.
Always remember, it is crucial to be in touch with your student's teachers, especially when he or she is absent.
