Mini-course is a new class that is a part of the 6th, 7th, and 8th grade electives class rotation. Students spend 3 weeks in a mini-course before moving to a new 3 week class. Mini-course classes offer a range of topics from forensics to theater. Our 5th grade students also have mini-course classes, but their mini-course classes last for an entire quarter. The mini-course classes replaced the study hall rotation for 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students and it replaced the required math tutorial and supplemental reading class in the 5th grade.
