Middle School Academic Program

Hastings Middle School and Jones Middle School offer opportunities for our students in grades 6 through 8 to continue to build a strong academic foundation in math, language arts, science and social studies. At the middle level, students are able to earn high school-level credit in math, science and global language. There, they also can begin their journey in Upper Arlington’s renowned performing arts program by pursuing orchestra, band or vocal music — and they may also engage in semester-long electives such as visual art, technology education, life skills, general music, health and physical education.

Please review the Middle School Program of Studies for a full listing of middle school course offerings and descriptions.
