Unique ways we support freshman

Link Crew connects ninth graders with a small group of classmates and upperclassmen mentors even before the first day of school and throughout the first year of high school.

Freshman Academy provides ninth graders with extra attention, support and care from teachers, staff and their peers. The academy pairs a core group of three teachers with about 160 ninth graders to form a small learning community.

Flex Time gives 9-12 grade students time during each week to use in the way that best fits their needs whether meeting with a teacher or tutor, collaborating with classmates on a project, or just relaxing with friends.
