MIDDLE SCHOOL COURSE GUIDE
The Swatara Middle School (SMS) community is extremely proud of our school, our staff, and especially our students. The time spent in the middle school can be full of trials and tribulations as children develop physically, socially, emotionally and intellectually. These times can be very dynamic while proving to be very stressful for many children, parents, and teachers. SMS faculty and staff are determined to meet these challenges because our students deserve the very best we have to offer. Children who are able to experience success in the middle school must first and foremost develop and hone their organization and preparation skills in order to manage the increased academic course load of the middle school curriculum.
This Middle School Course Guide has been compiled to explain the curricular offerings for students in grades 6, 7, and 8. Please take the time to read it and discuss the offerings and program requirements with your child. The years spent in the middle school are an opportunity for your child to develop a sense of ownership and independence over many aspects of his/her life. Take this opportunity to share your ideas and experiences while giving your child an opportunity to make some of the decisions to instill ownership in the decisions. With your support and direction along with the assistance of our professional staff, we will work collaboratively to provide your child with a rewarding educational experience encouraging the love of lifelong learning.
