Middle School students enjoy the opportunity to have “choice” within their weekly courses. The Middle School elective program allows students in grades five through eight the opportunity to select a semester-long elective of interest to them. Electives, which meet twice a week, allow creative development and hands-on experiences in a less formal classroom setting.
Class options are very diverse. Elective courses currently include:
- Business Entrepreneurship
- Electronic Journalism
- Recycled Art
- Study Hall
- Volunteering at the Jewish Community Center preschool
- Rock Band
Whether it is developing their own business, learning healthy lifestyle choices through yoga or competing in the digital world, electives serve as an entry point for making real life decisions.
