Final Exams – Important Information Final exams represent 20% of the grade for many of the courses taken by students in the high school. Students are required to take their finals during scheduled exam days. When course conflicts exist, an alternate schedule is put in place by the school. Alternate versions of the tests are prepared for each sitting. This is a time consuming process for teachers, but an important one in maintaining the integrity of the assessment process. Students are expected to attend assessments on the date and time allotted for them. We ask that parents support us by ensuring...

How to Foster a Love of Reading in Kids of all Ages Read to and with your kids:  Whether your child is five or fourteen, sharing books is a powerful experience.  With little ones, make sure you save 10 minutes right before bedtime to read two or three books to them.  With the old kids, talk to them about what they are reading.  Maybe read the same book they are reading so you can share thoughts and impressions.  Or sit down with them and read the book together out loud.  We are never too old to enjoy being read to.

Still Life with Iris: The 2015 Middle School main stage play, Still Life with Iris by Steven Dietz, was a huge success! It imaginatively and artistically told the story of a young girl who was kidnapped and had her memories stolen. The play blended comedy, drama, and fantasy into a fast-paced and colorful adventure tale. The students were true professionals on stage and kept the sold out audiences enraptured for the full length of the show. Congratulations to Lisa Baez for creating such amazing scenery for the play and to Jack Dod for directing the show and bringing the student actors to a...

What factors affect language learning? Student’s motivation to learn. Student’s personality and learning style. Family support for learning the target language. Quantity and type of exposure to the language. Proficiency of mother tongue. Should I speak to my child only in English? Parents of ESL students should use the home language at home. If parents are skillful in English, they may want to help their children with their homework if they feel comfortable doing so. Should I read to my child only in English? NO! Your children should read in their own language as well. Reading skills transfer across languages....
