We highly encourage students who did not meet STAAR expectations to participate in the summer enrichment program. Please see the link below for the summer enrichment program.
Summer programs offered for high school students are as follows:
AP (Advanced Placement) Course
Advanced Placement Program® (AP®) courses are college-level courses offered in high school. AP courses reflect what is taught in top introductory college courses. Students take AP Exams—standardized exams that measure how well students have mastered college-level course work at the end of the course. Students who do well on AP Exams can earn credit and/or placement into advanced courses in college.
TSI Prep Course (8th-11th/Mr. Deliktas-Mrs. Olivo)
The TSI measures students’ ability to do college-level coursework. It is a prerequisite for entry-level college courses. The TSI is designed to determine a student’s readiness for college-level coursework in the general areas of reading, writing, and mathematics.
Industry-based Certification (8th-11th/Engineering/Computer Science/Biomedical)
In a world where competition for jobs, pay increases, and academic success continues to increase, certifications offer hope because they are a credible, third-party assessment of one’s skill and knowledge for a given subject. Please see The Value of Certification video.
Creative Writing (8th-11th/ Mr. Fullen)
This course will heavily focus on a variety of creative writing aspects with an emphasis on the art of the short story. Should a student prefer to write poetry, dramas, screenplays, or some other form of creative writing, that can be facilitated as well, as each of these practices have analogous elements. Creative works will be discussed in a workshop environment. In addition, this course will be excellent practice to bolster a student’s general writing ability. We’ll be writing and reading daily.
