  • Aaron Mossell Junior High World Languages Department Selection

    All 6th graders will receive information from our World Languages Department to assist them in making their selection for the world language they wish to study in 7th grade at Aaron Mossell Junior High School. The Lockport City School District currently offers three different language programs:

    • French
    • Spanish
    • Latin

    All eligible students will be scheduled to participate in one of these world languages. World Language classes run every other day throughout their 7th-grade year and every day in 8th grade, culminating in a high school credit by the end of their 8th-grade year.

    ONLINE CLASS SELECTION FORM: Online enrollment will be open from Friday, January 20th at 7am and will close on Thursday, January 26th at 3pm. Please remember to submit your online Course Selection form as soon as possible as there are limited seats for each language. The number of seats are based on district staffing and scheduling. Each online submission is time-stamped and students will be assigned to languages on a first-come, first-serve basis. Your child will receive their second choice if their first choice is unavailable when the selection form is received. Carefully selecting your top two choices is very important as switching languages is not possible. New York State guidelines require students to study a language for two years at the middle school level and two more years at the high school level for an Advanced Regents Diploma. Please be
    advised that while we will make every attempt to accommodate students in their first choice of language, it may not always be possible.

  • Aaron Mossell Junior High Math Selection

    Students entering Grade 7 have two possible options for mathematics at Aaron Mossell Junior High School. The options include:

    • Math 7
    • Accelerated Math 7 Honors.
      • By entering the Grade 7 Accelerated Math program students will be afforded the opportunity to earn a High School math credit from Algebra 1 in Grade 8. This pathway will further allow accelerated students the opportunity to take Calculus for college credit during their senior year. To be recommended and placed into the Accelerated Math 7 Honors class students must meet the requirements below:
        • Qualifying scores on the NYS assessment given in grades 3 - 8
        • Qualifying scores on District administered benchmark assessments given in grade 6
        • Qualifying STAR Assessment percentile scores
        • Students must have a genuine interest in being challenged with a rigorous, fast-paced math curriculum and realize that this is a full-year commitment. Students will be re-evaluated at the end of 7th grade for potential 8th-grade math placement.

    ONLINE CLASS SELECTION FORM: This form will be available on Friday, January 20th at 7am and will close on Thursday, January 26th at 3pm. On this form, please simply indicate if you would be interested in accepting a placement in honors math, should your child be recommended. Only students who are recommended, based on the criteria above, AND have selected “Yes” on the Online Class Selection Form will be placed in Accelerated Math 7 Honors. If your child has NOT been recommended, they will be placed in Math 7.
