Welcome to middle school!  The middle school program in Knox County Schools consists of grades 6-8 and serves as the transitional bridge between elementary and high school.  In middle school, the unique needs of young adolescents are nurtured in an instructional environment that promotes academic excellence, career exploration, personal achievement, and positive peer and adult relationships.

Through the use of teaming, groups of students are scheduled with an interdisciplinary team of teachers to support the seamless delivery of instruction in the core academic areas and to foster a sense of community and belonging.  Students move outside of their team for elective course offerings that provide a range of exploratory opportunities for students to develop their own talents and skills.  

Middle School Resources:
AVID targets students in the academic middle –students with a 2.0 to 3.5 Grade Point Average- who have the desire to go to college and the willingness to work hard. AVID is a regularly scheduled elective class which meets during the school day empowering students to achieve academic excellence. (Learn More)

The Tripod Project
Student Feedback Survey
As part of our effort to provide teachers insightful student feedback, your child will be asked to complete a short, confidential survey on November 14 or 15th. 
This survey is designed by The Tripod Project, a consortium of schools and districts working together to close the academic achievement gap.  Our district has decided to pilot the Tripod student perception surveys this year and the information will be used to provide feedback for teachers and administrators. 
Student responses to these surveys will provide important information about their classroom experience.  Our goal is to better understand the student perspective as we strive to address the learning needs of all students.
