High Performance Class Information
This page will be updated sometime during the 2011-12 school year. Please checck back.
Applications are now available for students interested in applying for the High Performance classes for 2011-2012
Please note the following in relation to the placement process for these classes:
The application process is open to all students.
HP classes in English, science and social studies provide more opportunities for accelerated pacing, in-depth investigation, interdisciplinary study, and an emphasis on professional thinking skills, related to career development in specific disciplines. In addition, the development of quality student products is emphasized that support current and lifelong learning. HP math is an accelerated program that begins in either the sixth or seventh grade year. Placement in HP8 and HP9 classes is limited by “space available.”
Students who are currently “in good standing” in a High Performance class in English, science, math and/or social studies do not need to submit an application; nor do they need to re-test for placement.
It is important that students who are challenged to meet the rigorous expectations of the course understand the expectations of an HP class. Students who are interested in applying for an HP class must submit an application which has been signed by both the student and the parent to indicate their interest and commitment.
All 8th and 9th grade HP applications are due to the counseling office no later than March 10, 2011.
Testing at MGJH will be March 16, 2011 after school (2:50-4:20)
The HP Testing Make-up date for current 7th and 8th grade students who have applied for HP classes (and not yet tested) will be Tuesday, March 22nd at 7:30 AM and Thursday, March 24th at 7:30 AM in the counseling office.
Students must attend both session dates. Email firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.
HP Math questions should be directed to the student’s current math teacher.
If you have any questions about the placement process, please contact Katy Burns via email email@example.com or 763-315-7615, or contact Beth Carpenter at the ESC at 763-391-7089.
