What to Expect in High School


Middle school is a time of tremendous change - physically, intellectually and emotionally.  Students entering our middle schools face a different environment from the elementary schools with which they are familiar.  Opportunities for students to make decisions about participation in extracurricular activities - including athletics beginning in 7th grade - along with increased freedom of movement throughout the school, creates a new level of responsibility.

In the Onslow County School System, we feel that the primary focus of the middle school is to promote academic achievement, personal development and group citizenship in an environment conducive to teaching for learning for all students.  The middle school serves as a "bridge" between elementary and high school, and the curriculum must be both unique and transitional.  Unique enought to meet the needs of our individual students and transitional to provide the building blocks for success in high school and beyond.

Middle level education is specifically designed to respond to the developomental needs of students in grades six through eight.  All students in the middle grades are entitled to appropriate educational opportunities which will enable them to reach their maximum potential.  An effective middle school curriculum should allow all students to acquire a broad range of experiences academically, socially and physically.  In the middle grades, emphasis should be on critical and creative thinking, active learning and integration of subject matter.

The Onslow County Schools 2016-2017 Middle School Course of Study provides an overview of middle school, along with the programs and courses of study at Onslow County's middle schools.  It is an effort to provide students, parents and school professionals with an overview of Onslow County's middle school experience.

The information contained in this guide outlines promotion requirements, explains testing requirements and provides insight into long-range career/academic planning, as well as providing a listing of courses offered in Onslow County's middle schools.  Additional assistance in this regard is available through each school's Guidance Office.

It is our hope that this guide will provide students and parents an opportunity to begin looking at - and having conversations about - making transitions and their future in the Onslow County School district.

The Onslow County Schools 2016-2017 Middle School Course of Study is available as a complete download of the whole document, or in the constituent parts.
