ACADEMICS
The academic year is divided into two semesters. Each semester is made up of two nine-week quarters. Quarterly grade reports are available at the parent/teacher conferences scheduled for the end of the 1st quarter and midway through the 3rd quarter. Semester grades are sent home and recorded to the student's official transcripts. Final exams will be given in high school courses.
