Specialty Program Acceptances
Our 8th grade students are awesome!
This year we had 198 students APPLY for specialty programs - that's half of the entire 8th grade class (394 students)!
Students were ACCEPTED to a specialty program!! For my math teachers, that's a 96% ACCEPTANCE RATE!
So where are all of these smart students going for high school?
What programs were they accepted into you ask?
Math and Science Focus!
A huge proportion of our students (101) were accepted into STEM Programs including BioTechnology, BioMedical Science, Information Technology, the Pre-Governor's Program, and the Center for Environmental and Natural Science.
Job Well Done!!
The 8th grade team of teachers has done an outstanding job making sure that our students are prepared for the academic rigors of these challenging specialty programs. Our acceptance rate is a testament to the work you all do in the classrooms.
Also thank you for encouraging our students to apply and to those who also spent time completing recommendation forms!
