Middle School (Grades 7-8)
Beginning at the end of the 6th grade year, all students may apply to be selected for the middle school IH (Integrated Humanities) program. Students who are currently taking the math 6 advanced course may apply for the middle school IMS (Integrated Math/Science) program. The middle school integrated programs are both two-year commitments. Focusing on talent development and passion centered learning, these programs are also open to students who are not identified as GT but show advancement and drive.
Metz Middle School provides two integrated curricula:
- The Integrated Math/Science (IMS) curriculum, which has been developed for students who have consistently demonstrated exceptional ability in the areas of Math & Science and have been accepted by application into the IMS program;
- The Integrated Humanities (IH) curriculum, which has been developed for students who have consistently demonstrated exceptional ability in the areas of language arts and social studies and have been accepted by application into the program.
The application for both programs includes a teacher checklist, achievement testing, and an audition activity.
