Electives classes help students round out their program while still giving them choices. A variety of options allows students to continue developing their skills in athletics and physical education, technology and the arts, and gives them the opportunity to try something new. Sixth graders participate in electives twice a week. Seventh and eighth graders have an elective at the end of every day; they have a series of requirements to meet over two years to ensure they experience a variety of classes.
