Middle School Level

Middle school advanced-level courses, or Merit Programs, are considered Pre-Advanced Placement programs.

Merit Programs are available at every middle school and are designed to service students who consistently perform above grade level on math and reading skills and/or would like to experience more challenging curricula. Parents can nominate their child for this level of coursework, but a student's placement is not guaranteed.
