Sixth graders will attend our middle schools and Klahowya Secondary School in fall 2016.
This action came after several years of discussions around the best place for sixth-grade students.
We believe that middle schools are the right place for our sixth graders. They will benefit from access to more courses, activities and clubs. The middle school format also helps better support all students, including those needing enrichment and extra support.
We are creating middle schools for grades 6–8 that are student-oriented. They emphasize both academics and social development. This type of environment will help us provide our students with a better transition between elementary school and high school.
