Can middle school students take high school classes?
Yes. Middle school students can take high school courses but only if they have completed the prerequisites for the course. Middle school students that take a high school course, get credit for the course, and it fulfills the high school requirement. Students receive a grade on their high school transcript for the course but that grade is not calculated in their high school grade point average. Even though the courses appear on the transcript, the cumulative GPA begins in the fall of freshman year. Please note that some colleges and universities recalculate the GPA on all courses that appear on the transcript.
