The Middle School Philosophy is a huge part of the climate and culture of Heineman Middle School. Our students are arranged on two teams per grade level, where they receive instruction from five core teachers and one special education teacher. They also have an advisory period with one of our certified staff members, and the option to take band and/or chorus daily.

Students receive three quarters of PE each year and one quarter of Health. They also take four different nine-week exploratory classes throughout the school year that may include Art, Art and Design, Computers, Technology Lab, Foods and Nutrition, Creative Communications and Spanish. Freshman level Spanish and Chinese in a year long course is available to 8th graders who qualify.
