Could Boston go to 6-year high schools?


Boston Superintendent Tommy Chang, grappling with a sharp enrollment decline in the middle grades, is floating the idea of creating a system of elementary schools that end at grade 6 and high schools that start at grade 7, a move that could radically alter the fabric of most schools across the city.

Chang and his team have been talking about the idea with school principals since this summer and have begun soliciting proposals from individual schools.

The shift could result in reshuffling thousands of seats in the seventh and eighth grades.
