Middle School Electives
Each Wednesday in the Middle School, our students get to embark on some exciting learning adventures. We have expanded our elective program to allow students more choice, as well as give them ample opportunity to try new things and grow and discover their skills and passions.
Most students participate in four different electives each Wednesday, ranging from Robotics to Archery, MakerSpace to Leonardo Da Vinci Art. Students can delve into the world of geography in National Geographic Bee, stretch their serving muscles in Tech Buddies, test their creativity in Heroes and Heroines Altered Books, or inspire school spirit as a member of House Council, just to name a few. Most electives are a semester long, so come the end of January, they will get to try three-four new learning opportunities. Students are enjoying the extra elective classes, stating, “In my other school we only got to take one elective!” We are excited to give our students such diverse learning opportunities here at The Franklin Academy.
