Middle Schools

Moving your family is a challenging time, especially when relocating requires your children to change schools. Finding and selecting the right middle school is a difficult, but important decision. Middle schools serve as a bridge between elementary and high schools. Middle schools usually cover the sixth through eighth grades but in some districts the grade levels are seventh through ninth. Students begin to get more independence in middle school, often moving between classes for different subjects. Middle school students are also offered some choices (electives) in the classes they select.
