CONGRATULATIONS CLASS OF 2019!
WE WILL MISS YOU!!
THE END OF THE SCHOOL YEAR IS HERE!
End of the Semester Assessment schedule for grades 9-11 begins this week. The schedule is below. There will be review sessions during the zero period assessment time. The teacher will have more details.
MESSAGE ABOUT AP COURSES FOR NEXT YEAR
There are a few changes with AP courses for next year. We will be meeting with students during our Assessment Week to explain these changes. One major change is that students are required to sign up for the AP exam earlier in the year. We encourage students to challenge themselves. We want them to be sure they are committed to the rigor of an AP course. We would like for students to decide before they leave for the summer so our counselors can work to change their schedules. If students decide to drop an AP course in August, there will be a new process they need to complete. See below for more information:
AP courses are more rigorous and can involve more outside work. For some AP courses, there is summer work that is required. We ask that students decide before May 31 if they would like to drop the AP course for next year. Due to scheduling concerns, it is very hard to make this change in August. There is no guarantee that you will be permitted to drop the course in August. If you decide that you no longer want to be in the AP course in August, you must follow these steps:
- Students who want to drop an AP course at the start of the school year must schedule a conference with an administrator to justify reasoning for removal from the class.
- The student’s Guardian must communicate awareness of removal from the course with the teacher as well. This may be shown in writing. This communication must be presented to the administrator.
Please talk with your child about this important decision. If your child choose to make a change by May 31, have your child contact the school counselor asap. Your child will simply just choose another course.
