Middle School Transition
  • The 7th grade year marks an important milestone
    in a childs education it is the first year of
    secondary education. Worley Middle School offers
    a unique environment to promote this transition
    from an elementary instructional model to the
    secondary instructional model.
  • Students are introduced to new activities that
    demand a lot of their time such as Athletics,
    Band and Choir. Getting homework done and
    attempting to have a family or social life can be
    a little overwhelming during these times.
  • Students START working on time management and
    organizational skills prior to transitioning to
    middle school.

5
Worleys Houses
  • Students are placed in one of Worleys 6 houses
    based on their Advisory class.
  • Houses are made up of teachers and students.
  • Houses participate in friendly, positive,
    competition against other houses throughout the
    year, which creates a positive school climate.
  • Best (Zenith) - Cenit in Spanish
  • Brightest (Vivid) Wazi in Swahili
  • Work hard (Diligent) - Epimelís in Greek
  • Good choices (Discern) - Biànbié in traditional
    Chinese
  • Believe Kwé in Hatian Creole
  • Respect- Sam'maana in Hindi

Academic Courses
  • When selecting classes, please keep in mind the
    following thoughts
  • Pre-AP courses are RIGOROUS and INTENSE.
  • These courses generally require more time for
    homework and operate at a much faster pace than
    the regular 7th grade on level course.
  • Note Any student taking Pre-Ap Math will be
    required to take the 8th grade STAAR test.
  • We suggest that students only enroll in
  • 2 Pre-AP courses during their 7th grade year.

7
7th Grade Courses
  • Our school's master schedule is built on student
    course requests.
  • Teachers are assigned a daily schedule based upon
    the requests of all 950 of our students.
  • The deadline for any schedule changes
  • is April 11th 2014.
  • Select courses that you are truly interested in
    taking.
  • Provide the counselors with alternative choices
    for electives.
