Elective classes provide Stacey scholars with enrichment opportunities that go beyond the core academic curriculum. Stacey Middle School provides a variety of popular choices for elective classes. You can read a course description by clicking on the name of the elective on the right. We will try our best to place you in your most preferred elective choice. There will not be a zero period class.

 

We offer the choice of yearlong electives and a trimester elective rotation:

Elective Trimester Rotation: These electives are on a rotation so that you have a different elective each trimester. They are introductory courses that allow you to get a sample of various subjects. There are different Elective Rotations for 6th, 7th, and 8th grade. Students may not choose which elective they complete which trimester.

 

Yearlong Electives: These electives are for the entire school year. These classes allow you to dive deep into the subject. Some yearlong electives are offered to all grade levels and some are offered to only certain grade levels. Some yearlong electives require an application, have interviews, and/or have prerequisites. Please read the course descriptions carefully. No late applications will be accepted. You may apply to more than one yearlong elective, and you will indicate your preference when you complete the Elective Choice Form.
