• North Hills approves plan to move 6th grade back to middle school


    ROSS TOWNSHIP, Pa. - This will be the last year that sixth graders in the North Hills School District will have class at the elementary schools.

    The board approved the plan last winter because the district's elementary schools are running out of room.

    Moving the 6th grade to the middle school will help keep class sizes down.

    The district will make the move next summer, meaning this year's fifth grade class will be the first group of students to have sixth grade as part of the middle school.
