Grading for Semester 1
Students with a passing grade have the option to choose (with parental/guardian agreement) to receive credit in place of the letter grade.

Final Semester 1 grades will be available the week of January 25th. Once PowerSchool is updated, an email will be sent out informing parents and students that grades are available. You will be able to view grades in PowerSchool through your parent portal. If you would like a paper copy of the report card sent, please contact us.

EDUCATION
REDEFINED

Our Personal Mastery educational experience has redefined education and has gained attention around the state and nation. Personal Mastery provides your child with personalized attention from teachers. Instead of teaching to a broad group of students without understanding of their individual strengths and weaknesses, Personal Mastery allows teachers to interact with students individually or in small groups to help them better address their weaknesses. In this way, we strive to help your child reach their full potential.
