Sixth Grade is considered our introduction to the Middle School and middle school concept. There are 7 feeder elementary schools in the Beaver Dam Middle School including Jefferson, Lincoln, Prairie View, South Beaver Dam, Washington, and Wilson. Sixth Grade students enter our doors with multiple levels of experiences and from very diverse schools. The transition from a school of between 125 and 300 students to a class of about 230 can be very stressful and difficult to traverse.
Our 6th grade houses and teachers are very aware of these challenges and use them as an opportunity to embrace our students' experiences to enrich their educational lives.
