Grade 6 is an exciting new transition.

One would think Grade 7 may be an average school year yet, if you have your sights set on high achievement then you are on the right track. We like to inform students and parents of the academic maintenance that needs to be sustained in grade 7.
Students with a vision, including attaining membership in the National Junior Honor Society at Higgins, need to maintain specific grades. Please visit the "All Things NJHS" website for more information.
Students applying for private high schools or alternative high schools need to know that Grade 7 transcript would be sent to the high school of choice to which the student applied.
