The Elective Program at the Richmond Middle School allows students to explore a variety of subjects beyond their core academic classes and to delve into one or more that they feel passionate about. Because students can choose to sign up for Electives multiple times, they have an opportunity to dig as deeply into one area as they desire. In other cases, students may simply choose to sample a new skill. We honor student choices and our goal is to meet students where they are as we also challenge and move them forward. Some electives are quarter long and some are for the year, such as Painting on Canvas, Band, Strings, and Chorus. All students take Physical Education at least twice a week.
