2020

Guidance hopes that you and your families are all healthy and safe! Be kind to each other and yourself during this difficult time.

What kind of Mindset do you want to grow into?

The Guidance department has read Mindset by Carol Dweck throughout the year for us to best support you all. It has really built our understanding of Growth Mindset.


After looking at the info-graphic below, can you think about a time when you had a Growth Mindset instead of a Fixed Mindset?

SHOULD I TAKE MY AP EXAM?

AP Students:

During this unusual period of time, we understand that students taking AP courses might be unsure with how colleges will view results of AP exams for this year. Colleges have publicized that they would like to see students taking their exams this May. They recognize the students have worked very hard throughout this disjointed school year and realize that the test is also being adjusted significantly.


We encourage all AP students to take their exam this year being confident that the colleges are fully aware of the current situation. We have heard from many colleges about this topic over the past several weeks and wanted to share this pertinent information with you.


Northeastern seems to state it best when they say "Even with new exam formats, we will continue to honor our existing policy of offering course credit for AP exams earning a 4 or 5". This has been a consistent message from all colleges and universities.

It's time to put that elementary school grammar to good use!


Question: Is it correct that 7 and 5 is 13 or that 7 and 5 are 13?
