Internal Assessment Calendar
This year we have a mentoring program that involves 460 students at all grade levels. When matching students, we considered their schedules and also their interests -- a change from our 2018 process. Currently 147 freshman have mentors, 97 sophomores have mentors, and some of our sophomores are also mentoring freshman. Please encourage your child to be actively involved in this important relationship -- we have heard great things from students who have forged solid friendships through our mentoring initiative!

The Extended Essay
If you are the parent of a 9th or 10th grade student, it is too early for your student to begin writing but not too early for him/her to begin thinking about areas of interest. Some students even like to keep a log of possible EE topics - beginning in 9th grade!

"Tim Urban knows that procrastination doesn't make sense, but he's never been able to shake his habit of waiting until the last minute to get things done. In this hilarious and insightful talk, Urban takes us on a journey through YouTube binges, Wikipedia rabbit holes and bouts of staring out the window -- and encourages us to think harder about what we're really procrastinating on, before we run out of time."
