District adds on tougher courses

Nearly two years after a group of parents raised concerns about the quality of the classes at Center Grove’s two middle schools, more challenging science classes have been added, and more are on the way.

The parents wanted middle school students to be able to take more honors courses, which would build on the skills advanced students learned in elementary-level high ability programs. The parents also wanted Center Grove students to be prepared to take more challenging college-level and Advanced Placement courses once they reached high school.

This year, Center Grove added honors science courses for sixth- and seventh-grade students. Another honors science course and a biology course students can take for high school credit will be added for eighth-graders next school year.
