Requirements for Eighth Grade Students

Eighth grade students are required to complete and earn credit for the four core academic courses:  Math 3, Language Arts 3, Science 3, and United States History.  In addition to these courses, students are also required to complete a Physical Education course.  If necessary, Reading is also offered to students. Career Education is also offered in the eighth grade and is usually taught through the Physical Education or the Reading class.  Here at Freeport Middle School, we also offer Algebra I, Geometry, Advanced Language Arts, Advanced Science, and Advanced United States History.  Placement in advanced academics is based on grades, discipline history, teacher recommendation, and FSA scores.
