6th Grade Course Selection
GCISD strives to provide students with rigorous, relevant instruction to equip them with 21st century skills. As students enter middle school, their path to high school truly begins. We offer three levels of instruction:
· On-level classes meet grade level standards - one year of curriculum.
· PreAP classes also meet grade level standards with opportunities for more depth and complexity - one year of curriculum.
· Accelerated compacts curriculum and covers more than a year of grade level standards. These courses are taught at an accelerated pace.
Students soon will come home with course packets. Now is the time to talk with your child's teacher to decide what path is best for your child.
Through our LEAD 2021 goal of college and career readiness for all students, we encourage all children to challenge themselves to their highest potential.
We're excited to continue working with your student and partnering with you during this transition.
