My twin girls are starting middle school next year. It's a very large school. (500 kids per grade) They divide the grades into teams of 100 kids. Each of these teams has 4 teachers for each of the core classes. The classes are assigned by level. All of this is very complicated to me. I'm hoping this makes sense.
Another parent of older children that went through the school already mentioned that a friend of hers who has twins requested they be on the same team after the first year b/c dealing with 8 teachers was too much.
Since there are 100 kids per team and mine tend to be at different levels for some subjects I don't think they will be in all of the same classes. Being in a couple of classes together is okay. We've done the different class thing all through middle school.
Anyone out there with twins who have been though something similar with middle school? I'm trying to think of the pros and cons. At the moment all I can think of are the pros.
