Why are electives important in middle school?

Being educated encompasses far more than just the “three R’s.” Electives provide an opportunity for middle school students to explore subjects of interest to them and learn more about the world around them. Whether it’s a class with practical application or something a student just finds fun or interesting, elective classes provide:

  • An opportunity to practice decision-making
  • Try something they've never tried before
  • Prepare for more advanced classes in high school
  • Gain practical experience using technology, exploring career options or learning about food and health

When middle school students aren't limited to required classes and get to play a part in directing their studies, it helps them develop the confidence and skills they'll need for a successful high school career.

How to choose middle school electives

There are no rules here. Students can choose an elective that covers a subject of personal interest, like the theater, or take a class with a more practical application, such as the Keyboarding class, or a Gateway to Technology class.

Some things to consider when picking middle school electives:

  • How much work will the class require? If the student already has a heavy course load, it may make more sense to choose less intense elective classes.
  • Does the middle school student already have a future career in mind? For highly motivated middle school students, electives can be a way to create a strong foundation for high school and a career or higher education.
  • Is it time to broaden the horizons? While the first instinct might be to sign up for classes you already have a strong background or interest in, there can be a huge upside to trying something completely new.
  • Don't be afraid to get a professional opinion. Our guidance counselors have years of experience helping students choose their online courses and make the most of their middle school years.
