Rigorous & Relevant Academics

The new JHS/FTC will have a unique and distinct focus on each individual student’s education and career interests. The addition of many more rigorous post-secondary level courses will help the school raise expectations for achievement while meeting the needs of 21st century learners. Project-based learning activities will have a strong emphasis in the school’s lesson and unit design throughout the school’s curriculum.

The school’s courses will be organized in such a way so that each student can be fully aware of his/her career path that will help guide future decisions based on their interests. Students will be able to choose a program of study that will lead to being better prepared for work, technical school, or college. By increasing course options, JHS/FTC will present students with more opportunities for both college and career education programs. Another important addition will be an aligned set of courses that will allow students the opportunity to earn an associate degree while in high school.
 
The school will have an expanded curriculum with Advanced Placement courses and Dual Credit course offerings. Students will be able to experience a more rigorous curriculum while pursuing their interests. Realignment of the curriculum to ensure adequate course offerings are available across the spectrum for numerous career choices is a priority for the new ‘career path’ approach. And the expanded curriculum offerings will be designed to meet 21st century skills such as collaboration, communication, problem solving, technology literacy, and critical thinking. Learn more about 21st Century skills.
