Our middle school age students have several options available to them throughout EVSC. We offer all of our students the opportunity to qualify for advanced math and advanced language arts classes. If a student qualifies and the course is not offered at their home school, we have arranged bus transportation to a nearby school that does offer the course. Parental permission is required. We also offer several foreign languages throughout our corporation. The chart below outlines the various courses available to our high ability students in the middle schools.
