hey hannah. there are 6 classes in middle school, but you only have 4 teachers. that is bcause you have 1 teacher for 1-2nd period, which is either english & history, or mathh & science. you could either have math and science for 1-2nd period, or 3-4th period. sasme with english. then you have elective. which is like a class that lasts for about 10 weeks, i think. there is like art, or D.O.C., dynamics of communication, where you learn about how to talk to people, which is actually quite fun, there is also marine biology, where you learna bout marine life, there is drama, and in 7th-8th grade there is even horticulture, where you work in a garden, or wood shop, where you work with wood. It's pretty cool. then in 6th period is P.E. As a 6th grader you can either have p.e. in 5th or sixth peroid, and elective in 5th or sixth period. 7 8th graders usually have p.e. during 1st, 2nd , and 7th graders are during 3rd and 4th. wow. that was a long comment. oh ya, during 7th & 8th grade, you have 6 teachers, because the 1st & 2nd, and 3rd and 4th periods aren't combined. also, at Nobel, you have 6 min. for passing period. but because 1st & 2nd, and 3rd and 4th periods are combined, with nutrition, or recess, in betweeen each other, you don't really do passing period. only after your 5th period do you have to reach 6th period in 6 min. after 3rd and 4th period, there is lunch, then 5th and 6th.
