They've RUN their RACE!

Our halls will be a little less crowded these next 2 weeks as our Seniors are no longer gracing them. Instead they are having Graduation practice, Grad Walks and a Senior Picnic.


Graduation is Wednesday, May 25 at the Ford Idaho Center at 7:30pm. We hope to see you there!

Completion School this Summer

We have two weeks remaining for students to work hard to complete Projects (70% of the grade) and Power Focus + Additional Focus Area assessments (30% of the grade). Every item completed promotes learning and mastery of cognitive skills. Keep working hard!


For students who have a credit(s) to complete from past school years, and/or will need additional time to show their learning this year we will be offering Completion School for core credits (English, Math, History, Science, Technology). Some folks received emails about Completion School that do not need to attend. We are sorry for the confusion and appreciate your understanding that glitches can happen.
