The middle school experience
In middle school students begin to explore, test and challenge the world around them. Anoka-Hennepin's six middle schools have a supportive structure in which students are part of a "team," with each team sharing the same group of teachers all year for core subject areas.
Each middle school student is assigned an advisor and is given regular time to meet with the advisor during the week.
The comprehensive middle school curriculum includes math, reading, writing, social studies and science. Further opportunities in reading and math are available for students to focus on essential skills and for those who need advanced coursework.
Students can choose a number of electives in art, family and consumer science, music, world languages, physical education and industrial technology. More information on these classes can be found in the middle school registration guide
After-school activities and athletics for middle school students are organized through Anoka-Hennepin Community Education.
