Advanced Academic Opportunities
Every Okaloosa middle school offers programs for gifted and advanced students. Before enrolling your child in the sixth grade, you will be given a course selection guide to choose from. If your child participated in the gifted or advanced program in elementary school, his teacher will generally advise the student to take one to three advanced classes in middle school. Some courses may be offered strictly to those in the gifted program, whereas others may be offered to students whose previous performance and test scores indicate that they would benefit from more challenging coursework.
The guidance counselors at the middle schools will be happy to discuss the best course selections for your child.
