Academic Programs

We are proud of the high academic expectations we have for all students. It is our goal that each student reaches their fullest potential and experience academic success. One way that we closely monitor student achievement is through grades. At the end of each Trimester, we will celebrate student achievement and support students who may need intervention to reach their potential through our Academic Programs.

Parents of students who are At-Risk or on Academic Probation will be notified soon after report cards are sent home to communicate interventions that will be implemented for the student.

Homework Helpers - as offered by teachers after school

    • Students can have an opportunity to complete classwork or homework, or receive additional help from the teacher

Thank you for your continued support of your child, and for working with our teachers and staff to ensure the academic success of our students.
