Students entering sixth grade take an important and exciting leap by moving to our Middle School campus, choosing elective courses they will share with seventh and eighth grade students, and gaining more independence and responsibility. Our program is designed to help students transition with ease into this next important phase of their development.
The ACDS Middle School curriculum presents demanding academic core classes, balanced by a broad selection of high-interest elective courses.
The school day consists of seven 50-minute periods with five core subjects — English language and literature, mathematics, social studies, science and physical education — along with two elective courses.
Character education and service learning and leadership time is integrated into the weekly schedule for all Middle School students.
