Middle School Programming builds on the results of early childhood education and transitions students into the high school program. Successful middle school programs are characterized by a culture that is inviting, inclusive, and supportive of all. Significant academic learning experiences, characterized by rigorous content, vigorous instruction, and high expectations for all learners within a developmentally appropriate, safe, and supportive school, are the norm. The middle school experience is challenging, exploratory, integrative, and relevant.
In grades 9 and 10, students build foundational knowledge and skills. In grades 11 and 12, students enter into the personalized aspect of their PEP, focusing carefully on selected coursework that leads to successful completion of their personal and academic goals. Each student’s coursework will be designed to lead directly to placement in entry-level, credit-bearing academic college courses, completion of an industry‑recognized certificate or license, a workforce training program, or job placement.
Fayette County is committed to giving each student a successful experience in middle and high school.
