Sixth Grade Requirements

Sixth grade students are required to complete and earn credit for the four core academic courses:  Math 1, Language Arts 1, Science 1, and World History.  In addition to these courses, students are also required to complete a Physical Education course.  If necessary, Reading is also offered to students.  Here at Freeport Middle School, we also offer Advanced Math, Advanced Language Arts, Advanced Science, and Advanced World History. Placement in advanced academics is based on grades, discipline history, teacher recommendation, and FSA scores.
