Computers & Technology
We know the importance of computers in the world today. Word Processing and Computer Applications help students advance in typing and program applications. Knowing how to use these programs will help students with schoolwork, projects and reports. We also provide safe Internet access for the students to research and develop their skills with the computer. To ensure that student learning is maximized, we strive to keep the hardware and programs up to date. The computer lab and library computers are generally available after school for students to catch up on work.
Advanced Placement Classes
Advanced Placement Classes (AP) require students to take a standardized exam (at a cost) at the conclusion of the school year. If their score is acceptable, they may receive college credit for the class. A student can get the jump on the competition by taking the following AP classes: Calculus, English 11 (American Literature), English 12 (British Literature), and American History. Enrollment is based on grade point average and recommendation of the teacher. Other classes are available through the Michigan Virtual High School for an additional fee.
