Coursework for Middle School students stays quite the same
throughout Grades 7 through 8, only advancing from lower to higher levels in preparation for the more complex and abstract concepts that are taken up in High School. The focus changes in studies though, moving from foundational concepts to more advanced and integrated lessons.
At the same time, more choices come into play as students begin thinking about specialization options that will come to them in High School, and even more so in College. Their Math focus, science focus, and elective focus will be partly exploratory for them, and partly designed to match with the study and career selections they will make later in their academic lives.
