The Braxton Craven student body is made up of 1 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.
