Selecting Your Classes for Sixth Grade

Welcome Sixth Graders!

We are so glad you are joining us at Lexington. We know one of the really exciting things about middle school is the ability to choose some of your classes. This page will help you through the process of selecting classes you are interested in taking.

Please use the Google Form below to select your classes. The Form will be accessible from May 15-May 27. If you are not sure what classes you might be interested in, you can find full descriptions of each class in the slideshow below. 

Lexington is an International Baccalaureate (IB) Middle Years Programme (MYP) school, which means you will find differences between Lexington and other area middle schools in how we label and name our classes. IB has eight subject areas in the MYP and almost all of our classes fit into one of them. Your art classes are part of the ARTS subject area. A variety of classes are part of the DESIGN subject area. These classes will use something called the Design Cycle to help you identify and create solutions to problems in the world around you. Don’t worry, you will learn more about the Design Cycle later. The reason we are explaining those classes here is that you will be required to take at least one ARTS class and one DESIGN class. You can take more than one of each, but you can’t take three ARTS classes and no DESIGN classes. When you choose your classes, you will notice that ARTS and DESIGN classes are separated.

All sixth graders will automatically be enrolled in PE and Health, so you won’t see those classes as options. You will also not see Spanish as an option as there will be some instances where certain schedules do not have room for the class. 

We will do our best to make sure your schedule reflects your choices, but please keep in mind, sometimes, we can’t fit certain classes in certain schedules.
