Students from the Alden and Iowa Falls School Districts join during their sixth grade year in Alden. Students are scheduled into an 8 period day in which they travel throughout the building for their core academic courses, fine arts, and exploratory classes.
Academic courses: Reading, Language Arts, Science, Social Studies, and Math
Fine Arts: Students are required to participate in band and/or choir or have the option of General music.
Exploratory Classes: Art, Industrial Technology, Keyboarding, Lifeskills, and Health
Our goal is to provide a smooth transition for students between elementary and middle school years. Some unique differences for sixth graders include social activities that are more age appropriate and offer the opportunity to socialize and collaborate. Examples include Winter Olympics in December and a Valentine Social in February.
