All clothing must meet the school’s dress code requirements.

Weekly units will also include a focus on career exploration and investigation, allowing students to identify their roles as workers, analyze their personal assets, explore career clusters, select career pathways or occupations for future study, and prepare for the creation of an Academic & Career Plan (ACP) based on their academic and career interests. The curriculum for health includes family life, personal safety, nutrition, and fitness. The major focus is to teach the middle school student how to be healthy and safe.
