Middle Schools (grades 6-8) 
The four middle schools continue the elementary emphasis on academic instruction in the core curriculum areas of English, math, science, and social studies and begin students' transition to high school in a supportive environment. 

The middle schools are divided into "teams" of approximately 125 students. Academic instruction is organized around these teams, which also provide structure and stability for students in their transition between elementary school and high school. Middle school students also have the opportunity to explore music (band, choir, and orchestra), art, foreign languages, technology, and other areas.

Students may choose from regular, Advanced Placement, and concurrent credit courses in most academic areas. The high schools in Rogers also offer a career academy structure and function as wall-to-wall academies.  All Freshmen are members of the Freshman Success Academy.  All 10-12 students are in one of the following academies:  Arts and Communication, Business, Public Service or Science.  These academies help to create smaller learning environments for students and to increase the relevance of their classes to their future.
