Sixth Grade Guidance Class
Classroom instruction is provided to sixth grade students in the areas of study skills, career awareness, and social skills. It is taught by both the principal and guidance counselors on an alternating marking period basis.
These meetings are scheduled at 7:45 AM in order for parents and teachers to share information regarding student academics, behavior, social and emotional concerns.
All major subjects are scheduled individually for each child. Previous academic achievement, teacher recommendation, standardized testing, and prognosis testing are used to determine placement. Scheduling starts at the end of the school year and is completed during the summer.
