MVMS Course Selection

School Year 2022-2023

Course Selection season is here!

The elective class is the only class that MVMS students actually get to choose - we want their voice to be heard! We encourage students to choose a class that they are excited about, that may challenge them, and that will enrich their middle school experience.

*7th and 8th grade students only: ASB is by application. Students will not select ASB as one of their elective choices. If interested in ASB, students need to complete the application. If they are selected for ASB, their elective will automatically be replaced in Synergy. ASB applications will be available on March 7, 2022 and are due by March 21, 2022.

Things to Keep in Mind:

ALL STUDENTS will choose 3 electives: their #1 choice, or request - and 2 alternates.

All elective courses at MVMS are year-long. Students are making a choice of their elective for the entire school year. We encourage them to choose something they will enjoy taking for 180 days! Some courses, like 7th/8th Exploratory, do change subject matter and instructors at the semester.

We cannot accommodate elective changes after school starts in August.

Electives offered are based on student request, teacher schedule, and space.

It is possible that not all electives will happen due to these factors.
