Middle School Programs

There are two academic course opportunities for qualifying middle school students: Academic Resource and advanced math placement. They are designed to challenge and accelerate student thinking. Both the AR and math courses meet for one period daily. The rest of the day, students learn with their regular education peers in core and elective courses. Both Hillside and Meads Mill Middle Schools are fully accredited International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme schools. IB schools provide a rigorous framework which challenges all students.


Academic Resource (AR)

This is an enrichment opportunity for academically talented students who meet eligibility requirements (space provided). Project Lead the Way (PLTW) will also be included in Academic Resource courses. Therefore, AR will also have a focus on both science and technology.

If you have any additional questions, please contact Sandra Brock

Advanced Math

Students who enroll in an advanced math course in 6th grade will take Algebra I, or a higher level math course, by 8th grade. Algebra I, and subsequent math courses, accrue high school credit.



For current middle school students taking high school level courses, please refer to the Board policy below concerning grading.
