Junior-Senior High School
During this time of the year, contact between the school and the community is especially active, as we are completing our scheduling process for the next academic year.
The process, which focuses primarily on course selection for the underclassmen, is a prime time for parental involvement, as their input is actively sought through a series of meetings and conferences. It is important for us to insure that the parents are kept abreast of the course selections available to the children, and also made aware of the requirements for graduation. It also provides an opportunity to assess parental attitudes, interests, and concerns.
A number of seniors continue to challenge themselves, as they are in the final stages of the process required to prepare for Advanced Placement exams. These tests are given in the second and third weeks of May, and the seniors are just completing their practice exams, which are given as part of our Spring testing program. Mr. Eggmann and Mrs. Carr are preparing students for the AP French and Spanish exams by giving a practice test on April 20th. The actual AP Spanish exam and AP French exam will be given on May 8th and 9th respectively. Mr. Stine's AP Physics students have studied electromagnetism.
