AMHS Weekly Update

September 12, 2022- September 16,2022

4.5 Week Progress Reports- AVAILABLE THIS WEEK!!!

The 4.5-week progress reports will be available to parents and students in Infinite Campus on Thursday, September 15th. Please be sure to review your student's grades. Progress reports provide parents and students with the student's academic progress in a course 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.

School Uniforms

All students are expected to be dressed in their full AMHS Uniform beginning Monday, September 12th. This Monday is "Blazer Monday" and students should be in their AMHS blazers. Students out of uniform will be asked to contact their parents to bring them the appropriate AMHS uniform. Please review the uniform policy below with your student. Thank you in advance for assisting us with our uniform policy.
