In science classes, students begin with a study of the physical world and advance to engineering skills. The focus is on real-world applications of problems so that students gain knowledge they can use in college, the workforce, and beyond. In humanities classes, students read complex and interesting texts, with guiding questions, for content and intent. They gather evidence from their reading and use it to support their ideas and opinions when writing persuasive, informational, and analytic essays and giving oral presentations.

Chalk Talk: Considerations about Gap Years
A sobering fact is that millions of dollars are wasted, and thousands of dollars of debt for young people, are created every year by students who drop out of college. This usually occurs during their first year, often during the first term. Students drop out, often with bad grades or incompletes. Worse than this, they’ve had a negative experience, and it can take a long time for them to overcome this and return to college. Some will enter community colleges to test the waters and make up missing, required classes before moving on to four-year colleges. This can be a great bridge. But, of course, it would be better if students avoided this false start entirely. A Gap Year is a great way for students to gain the maturity and life experience to ensure that they are ready for college.
