Rising 6th-Graders

  • We want to help students' transition between elementary and middle school to be smooth and productive. Please take a look at important information for rising sixth-graders.

  • Middle School Selection of Electives

    All 5th grade students will be provided an opportunity to make elective selections for their upcoming 6th grade year. All selections will be made electronically in March or April at their current school, and the options available vary by middle school. A confirmation notice will be sent home for parent approval and signature. For a list of electives available to your child, please click on the school below to which your child is assigned. Please note that selection of an elective does not guarantee placement in the course. Final decisions are made at the middle school. If you have any questions, please contact your child's classroom teacher.

  • Vaccinations

    For information on any required vaccinations, please visit our immunization information page.


    While sixth-graders are not eligible for interscholastic athletic teams in North Carolina, the information on the Athletics webpage may help you to plan ahead for tryouts and participation in seventh and eighth grades. For more information, contact your school's athletic director.
