6th graders are required to take the following core classes:
1. ELAR (English Language Arts and Reading): ELAR is double-blocked, meaning you
will have it twice a day with the same teacher. It counts for 2 of your 7 classes. So when you
get your schedule in August and see ELAR on it twice, remember it is not a mistake!
2. Math
3. Science
4. Social Studies
 These core classes have already been selected for you.
• GT Reading and Pre-AP math are available for 6th graders.
▪ These placements will be made at the end of the school year.
▪ Placement in Pre-AP Math will be determined based on an end of year
placement exam, unit assessments from 5th grade, 5th grade report cards,
and STAAR assessments.
▪ Students who are in the Gifted and Talented program will be placed in GT
reading.
