Learning Circle

The Braxton Craven student body is made up of 13 homerooms of 6th graders.  Each student is assigned to a team of core teachers for Language Arts, Math, Science, and Social Studies.  Students also have two elective classes each day, including PE/Health. Within the school day, students also participate in enrichment and remediation activities planned by their teachers to address individual learning needs. Spanish Immersion students from HES participate in Spanish during enrichment time.


Core Curriculum

Core subjects include Language Arts, Math, Science, and Social Studies courses, which are required by the state of North Carolina for all 6th Grade students. All BCS core teachers follow either the NC Common Core State Standards, or the NC Essential Standards for the subject area they teach.
