Welcome to the 6th grade at SBMS! As a 6th grade student at SBMS, you will get a taste of Middle School while still enjoying a small class and fewer teachers than the 7th-9th graders. Sixth graders have a homeroom type schedule with Humanities being a double class period each morning.
In addition to the academics of Humanities class (see tabs below), students have a chance to check in with their teacher, hear school announcements, look at schedules, etc. The rest of the day is rounded out with math, life science, and a wide array of electives. Spanish is taught twice a week and Life Skills twice a week. As a student moves through their day as a 6th grader at middle school, they will see 3 main teachers instead of 5.
Students in sixth grade get a unique experience at SBMS because they are with the same students for the majority of their day. They bond as a class and those bonds stick with them throughout the rest of their time at Middle School. Because the students know each other so well, those relationships work to their advantage in all group projects we do, whether it be the interdisciplinary Shark Tank Inventor's Project in January, the mid-year Backpacking Trek in March, the Spanish Fashion Show, or the numerous lab projects in Science.
