High School Academic Support

Is your student having trouble completing a homework assignment?  Does your son/daughter feel unprepared for an upcoming quiz or test?  How can he/she get academic assistance when not in class?  Students are encouraged to advocate for their needs in the following ways:

During the School Day – The first step in seeking help is to approach a teacher right after class.  Questions and concerns may be resolved then, or if lengthier assistance is needed, a meeting time will be scheduled during lunch, morning break, or before/after school.

Lunchtime Homework Room – Students may drop in to Lunchtime Homework Room on any given day for help with math or simply to have a quiet place to study.  Homework Room is scheduled during first and second lunch.

Before or After School – Whenever a student needs help, but is unable to speak with a teacher directly after class, the student may request a meeting time with the teacher via a visit to the teacher’s classroom or by writing a note and leaving it in the teacher’s mailbox in the high school office.

At Home – Teachers will provide information about homework assignments via a syllabus and/or their online message board, in addition to assigning tasks verbally and in writing on the classroom blackboard.  Parents and students may also communicate with teachers via e-mail (preferred) or telephone.  In general, faculty will respond to phone calls and e-mails within 48 hours.
