     Our  9th grade Academy students - what a great class! 

     

  • Our Annual College Visit Field Trip was Nov. 1, 2018.

  • About our Freshman Academy . . . 

    ​Our new Freshman Academy is designed to be a small learning community just for 9th graders.  We're created a corridor of classrooms with all specially selected 9th grade Academy teachers for classes in English Language Arts and Math and 3 special course offerings - one of which all Freshman Academy students will take: AP Human Geography, AVID or Freshmen Success.  These classes provide an important foundation - the study skills, rigor, nurture and support our newest Spartans need to achieve success in 9th grade and beyond.  We can't wait to get started together.

    Here's a link to the research and rationale behind 9th Grade Academies.

     

     A few items that are non-negotiable:

    • ALL freshmen received an agenda. They must use it daily: 
      • Students must write in the agenda every day: Learning Target, Daily Vocabulary, Gradual Release, and Evidence of Mastery.
      • Please utilize the agenda for passes. No agenda = no passes
