CMS 2017-2018 Course Selection Process

CMS is beginning the 2017-2018 course selection process for current 7th and 8th grade students as well as for 6th grade students who will attend CMS next year. The course selection process allows students to pick their courses for the upcoming school year.

One piece of this process centers on creating a wide variety of elective courses for middle school students to take. Combs Middle School students will have several exciting new elective course options to choose from during the 2017-2018 school year. These courses include:
  • Coding Graphic Design
  • Introduction to Medical Professions Leadership Development
  • Photography TV/Film Production
  • Weight Training Teens 'n Teaching

The addition of these elective courses to our current offerings allows the middle school the opportunity to expand the options that students have to explore future careers and interests. These elective offerings will allow CMS to develop a pathway to current courses CHS offers.

Course selection for the 2017-2018 school year kicks off the week of February 6 for all incoming 7th and 8th grade students. View the documents below to learn more about these electives and other offerings and to find out more about registration.
