Transcript of The High School

At The High School courses are designed to prep students for college. Not only are they ready for college but these courses will apply the topics they learn to everyday life. Classes include auto shop, wood shop, VAPA, culinary classes, home economics, business math, journalism, health & safety, conflict & resolution, different languages, graphic design, and many more classes.
At risk students' needs will also be addressed personally. All classes are for the students to engage in learning with different teaching styles and assorted subjects. At risk students are accommodated to their unique learning style so we can get everyone active in their education.
All students will be motivated to do their personal best in school. The achievement gap will be addressed by having teachers that encourage all their students and talk one on one with those who are falling behind. Also for students with learning disabilities we have classes that move at a slower pace helping them catch up and process the information.

Students will be judged by their completion of homework, scores they achieve on both standardized tests, regular in-class tests, and the effort they put into work.

The school’s overall success will be based on test scores compared to the state and the nation. Including:
percentage of students passing the Advance Placement exam
percentage of students scoring proficient and advanced on standardized tests
The school’s overall improvement compared to previous years
graduation percentage of the senior class
the number of students attending colleges and universities

Teachers will be able to receive merit pay for helping students achieve higher scores. We hope that teachers will become more active in trying to improve their student’s performance if they get a higher pay.

-one who cares about his or her students (academic and/or personal difficulties)
-understanding, but fair when grading (should not be “pushovers”)
-should have a set rule in rounding students’ grades
-not be tardy or absent unless they have a specific reason
-responsible for properly teaching an explaining new material to students
-However, if individual students need help, it is their own responsibility to ask their teachers not to play favorites among students
-acceptable to have a better teacher-student relationship (due to clubs, previous classes, etc.), but this does not justify favoritism (or nepotism)

-not only cares about a student’s class schedules, but also a student’s social, mental, or physical well-being
-If teachers notice abnormal or irregular behavior in a student, they should send the student to a counselor
-help students solve their problems if students are in need of help
-In terms of academics, counselors should encourage studnets to do their best and not give up
-always support students, but they should not give them additional stress in their lives

- Teachers, counselors, administrators, or others in the school body should help students with stress they may have in their lives, but if students are in need of medical attention, everybody has the responsibility to inform parents and doctors (if necessary).

Every week our high school will raise funds for our programs. Students are given class credit for helping out in our fundraisers. We will hold fundraisers at student-produced concerts, pep-rallies, sport games, school plays, school or community festivals, and other interactive or entertaining places. We highly appreciate donations. We are also given government funding for certain programs at our school (special education, sports programs, VAPA, etc.)

There will be an interactive in-school program called “Lend a Hand” where high-achieving students can help at risk students by setting up meetings where they could talk about themselves and what they are going through. After both students know more about each other, the high-achieving student can then help out his schoolmate by tutoring or giving him good advice. High achieving students can gain leadership skills, learn communication skills, and even acquire volunteer hours for school clubs while motivating and helping at-risk students improve their academic habits.

Emphasis on personal achievements toward goal
Students encouraged to work toward college (or a specific education/career goal)
Rigorous classes to motivate students
Students prepared for life (i.e. time management)
School philosophy focuses on all students equally
Good campus environment
Heavy workload
Classes challenging
Many supplies are needed to support ROP classes
Increased stress for overachievers

The High School strives send all of their students to college. However, if attending college is not the path your children wants to follow, they will be ready to survive in society. All students will be given the proper care and education they deserve despite obstacles they may have. Students will be able to apply the skills they learned at The High School for the rest of their lives.
