School Planning

MacFarland Middle School reopened in August 2016 as a Dual-Language middle school serving 6th and 7th grade students. Next year, we will continue to grow our Dual-Language program to serve 8th graders and welcome our first 6th grade comprehensive (non-dual language) class. We will welcome this class in a newly modernized and renovated state of the art building.

What schools and programs feed into MacFarland?

As a middle school with both comprehensive and a dual-language programs, MacFarland has both geographic and programmatic feeder schools.
