Our School Goals
Our school goals align with the district strategic plan:
Goal 2- Whole Child: Thriving, Confident, Responsible Individuals
- A Site Equity Leadership Team committed to building relationships between all stakeholders, to ensure equitable educational access for all scholars regardless of race, religion, or culture. We are also focused on examining and dismantling institutional and individual racism in all forms through intentional school-wide professional development grounded in research.
- PBIS Matrix focuses on school-wide systems to support a safe learning environment—working to establish the foundation for delivering regular, proactive support to support positive behaviors
- Increased focus on Multi-Tiered Systems of Support that focuses on prevention and problem solving for all. We are connecting academic and non-academic supports in order to eliminate barriers to learning and teaching. Systems include AVID, Character Strong, Communities in Schools, Mentor & ME, PBIS, Titan Quest
Area of Focus
- In a remote learning environment, scholars participate in at least 90% of asynchronous and synchronous classroom instructional time. SEL/CCR (or TBTALKS) stands for social-emotional learning/college and career readiness learning. These lessons work to support scholar’s social emotional well-being and to reinforce school-wide expectations and norms. Additionally, state graduation requirements for college and career planning are taught as part of SEL/CCR.
Goal 5- Persistence to Graduation through Goal 4 Content-Area Competence, Mastery of All Subjects: High School Graduation Through Successful Transitions
- Continuous and persistent learning to provide equitable and consistently coherent standards-based grading and reporting practices schoolwide
- Our graduation rate has remained between 86 and 88%, higher than both the state and the national average
- The Class of 2020 earned more than $2,000,000 in scholarships
Area of Focus
- Increase by 10% the number of scholars participating in advanced coursework and earning a passing grade in: a) the progression within a content area, b) Advanced Placement coursework c) college-credit bearing courses d) CTE courses
- Increase by 10% the number of scholars meeting grade level standards in core subjects, as measured by state assessments: Smarter Balanced Assessment, District Benchmark Assessment.
