Academics

Students or parents/guardians concerned about academic progress are encouraged to contact teachers and school counselors. Parents/guardians can log on to their PowerSchool accounts to request electronic notifications regarding their child’s grades and attendance. Counselors can also set up face-to-face meetings with parents and teachers if necessary. Additionally, the Core-Flex schedule provides students with time to receive extra academic support. During the Core-Flex time students can access teachers for academic help, make up work, complete projects, or access the library and school counseling office.
