Moving On Up: Travis 6th Grade Campus

How can school districts ease the transition from elementary to middle school? Travis 6th Grade Campus – a standalone school for 400 sixth grade students in Amarillo, TX – supports young learners’ academic, social, and developmental needs.

Organized around three small learning communities that support team teaching, improve student-to-staff ratios, and provide more individualized attention, Travis has helped students achieve higher academic scores and has even reduced discipline issues.

Learn how a diversity of instructional spaces and a culture dedicated to sixth-grade needs contribute to important skills that prepare students for middle and high school.
