The middle school day runs from 8:00 am to 2:55 pm on a six-day cycle. (Buses depart at 3:00 pm) All students have a major subject core (language arts, reading, mathematics, science, and social studies/geography) which covers approximately 200 minutes of instruction daily. In addition, physical education, health, and fine and practical arts experiences are scheduled. Team building, enrichment, interdisciplinary and club experiences provide students with additional academic and social opportunities. A half-hour lunch and ten-minute homeroom occur each day. Band and chorus opportunities are available to interested students and are scheduled during the regular school day.
