All paths are not the same. Many diverge and are often in opposition to what others may want for us or what we desire for ourselves.
By questioning ourselves and others, and through the continued exploration of ideas, a path will begin to take shape. As it continues to meander, a fluid structure will form. However, what may work for one does not work for all. Multiple strategies are explored to meet the needs of diverse learning styles. All classes are inclusive and strive to present students an academically rigorous experience with the intent of preparing them beyond the classroom, whether that be the pursuit of higher education, the work force, and/or involvement in the community.

For 9th Grade Parents:
Parental support is crucial to student success as they embark on a new educational experience. There are many factors that can affect the learning process of a student. Please encourage and cheer on your student as they navigate a new environment that will challenge them on multiple levels.Grades in class will fluctuate throughout the semester. I encourage you to check your student's grades online weekly to alleviate any academic issues early. I have provided a link to HAC in the upper right hand corner of this page under the email contact. Login information and passwords may be obtained from the counselor. I am available to discuss your student's progress at anytime.
