9th & 10th Grade Academy All 9th and 10th graders will be assigned classes stressing the Math, Reading and Writing components of the AIMS Tests that are administered in the Spring of the 10th grade year. Teachers work closely and monitor each student’s progress through periodic bench-mark testing. The goal is to ensure that each students scores high and passes the required tests for graduation. The Academy Students are required to attend school Friday mornings for additional help and tutoring. The Academy Teachers work closely with each other as they prepare lessons for the students. Algebra 1 and Geometry are the required Math courses and 9th and 10th grade English are required for the English credit. In past years we have found the Academy has increased student scores and the students receive a solid foundation in Math and Reading in order to ensure success in the higher grades.
