Santa Rosa Middle School is thrilled to announce that it has been selected to launch the District’s first middle school College and Career Readiness STEAM lab! Students who take this semester long course will take another semester long course to comprise their elective for the 2019-20 school year. We can’t wait to house this incredible program that aligns perfectly with the robust Career and Technical Education offerings at Santa Rosa High School.
Every student at SRMS chooses one elective class per year. If the student enrolls in zero period P.E., they can take two elective classes. Some of the elective classes are semester long and switch with another class mid-year. SRMS offers:
