What's Happening in the 2015-2016 School Year!


Specific Academic

 

Math Science and English: Robert Stuart and O'Leary Middle Middle Schools  have Accelerated Math classes and Advanced Opportunities classes in English and Science. 

Dual Enrollment, AP, and Honors classes are available at both High Schools.

 

The High School has a Quiz Bowl  for Math and Science students.

 

Think Through Math lets students learn math at their own pace.  It also offers help from a certified Math Teacher on-line. 

 

General Intellectual

The  GT Magnet Classrooms serve both Academic and Intellectually talented students. The Fourth Grade is held at Sawtooth Elementary .  Shawn Jones is its teacher. Kaylyn VanOstran teaches the Fifth Grade Magnet Classroom at Perrine Elementary.  She will teach Fourth Grade next year with new students in the same classroom.

 

Secondary IDLA classes are a great way to get ahead.  Classes can be taken in a lab during school hours, after school at home and during the summer. Middle School students can get High School credit taken through IDLA.  High School students can get College credit in the same way.  Please ask our school councelors about the "8 in 6" program.

For the Elementary Grades there is an auditioned for Honors Choir  held in some schools.
