In seventh grade, students are exposed to a wide variety of academic material that promotes independent learning and problem solving skills. Multiple steps are required to complete the thought process on most assignments. Every student is enrolled in core curriculum classes, including literature, language arts, math, science, and social studies. Additionally, one quarter of computer keyboarding is required of each seventh grader. Elective classes include art, band, and choir.

Students also participate in physical education all year. In conjunction with academic skills, social skills of empathy and kindness toward others are promoted through the Second Step program.
