Middle School Curriculum
Students in middle school take required courses in English, Math, Science, and Social Studies. In addition to other required courses (such as Health), students must also take a minimum number of courses in Fine Arts (band, choir, orchestra, theater, visual art) and physical education (which can include competitive athletics).
As students prepare for high school, they are also responsible for selecting an endorsement.
Students entering high school must now select an endorsement. An endorsement is an area of specialized study, determined by a sequence of specific courses. For an overview of graduation requirements and endorsement options, see the following handout for 8th graders (and parents) as they prepare for high school.
For more detailed descriptions of course offerings related to the endorsements available in WFISD, see the High School Course Sequences document.
