All middle school students are expected to carry a full program of studies. Generally, this means core courses in English, mathematics, world languages, science, social studies and performing arts. Students in the SLD or EAL programs may have to forgo the study of a world language.
In addition, physical education and health are required in all grades. Art and drama are required in Grades 5 and 6. In Grades 7 and 8, students may choose from a wide variety of special subject electives, which includes the visual arts, performing arts, technology and service learning.
