It is an honor to inform you of some exciting changes here at Anderson County High School. Never in our school’s history have we been able to offer more opportunities for our students, directly impacting our mission…to care for all students, to engage them in learning, and to prepare them for the future.
First of all, because of our outstanding students, parents, and staff, we continually become a safer school. In a recent survey of our student body, 98% of our students felt safe while at school. Please continue to let us know when issues arise so that we can improve. Working together, we can maintain a safe environment for all stakeholders.
In keeping with our mission of engaging students in learning and preparing them for the future, we are creating more avenues for students to acquire low-cost college opportunities while attending ACHS. Through our Early College Program, students can receive college credit by earning qualifying scores on Advanced Placement tests and by passing dual credit BCTC classes. For the first time, our kids will be able to earn high school core graduation requirements by passing the appropriate dual credit class – i.e. History 109 for the ACHS US History class.
For those students who have yet to qualify for dual credit classes by passing the college readiness benchmark scores on the ACT and/or Compass tests, we have a quality intervention program that will help them improve their scores on the ACT/Compass test by the end of their senior year.
Finally, we want to hear from you. You play an important role in our school. Please let us know of any ideas for improvement or issues to be addressed. Working together we can fulfill our school’s mission.
