AMHS Weekly Update

September 13, 2021- September 17,2021

4.5 Week Progress Reports Available Monday, September 13th

The 4.5-week progress reports will be available to parents and students in Infinite Campus on Monday, September 13th. Please be sure to review your student's grades. Progress reports provide parents and students with the student's academic progress in a course at every 4.5 week period during a semester. The grades on a progress report are not a part of the student's permanent record or transcript but should help students to gauge their performance in a course. Student grades are finalized at the end of each semester and are posted to the official transcript at the end of the Fall and Spring semesters. Therefore, it is imperative that students are aware of their grades in a course and that they take advantage of any remediation opportunity that has been provided by the teacher.




As a reminder, Career Pathway students must earn a 2.5-semester G.P.A., and Magnet students must earn a 3.0-semester G.P.A. to maintain satisfactory academic standing. Students falling below this G.P.A. requirement at the end of the Fall 2020 semester are in jeopardy of being placed on academic probation or being exited from the academic program. Encourage your child to calculate their current G.P.A. by using the instructions attached below. Please speak to your child about their current status in their courses and contact your student’s teacher if you have any questions regarding their progress in a course.

Stay Informed

We are committed to ensuring that you are informed about your student's progress at Arabia Mountain High School. Campus Portal is a confidential and secure website that provides parents, students, and staff with real-time access to information to better understand, monitor and participate in the educational process. Parents are able to update their emergency contact information in the account settings in Infinite Campus at any time. If you need to update an address in the portal, please contact our school's registrar or assistance.


If you have any questions regarding your child's progress in a course, please contact your child's teacher for assistance.
