Welcome to STRIVE Prep - RISE

Together we RISE!

This semester we continue to be focused on cultivating a culture of respect at RISE. During 2nd semester we will build on that and focus on scholar’s taking their education more seriously and owning their educational outcomes. Operation #ownyourprogress is kicking into high gear. Scholars will take steps to know where they stand academically and set goals towards personal progress over this semester and year (specific to PSAT as well as their individual classes).

Our 10th grade scholars have put in a lot of hard work this year to both STRIVE towards their junior year with solid GPAs and be involved in clubs and sports, while our 9th grade scholars have made progress adjusting to a new culture, and new academic expectations, all during one of the more stressful transitions of their lives.

Thank you for your ongoing support of ensuring your scholars are present each day (we have stayed above 94% attendance during first quarter!) We cannot do this work without your support. We know scholars can achieve more when they are present and showing effort in all they do. Please help us keep our expectations in line by ensuring your scholars come to school in appropriate dress code daily.

Scholars are expected to earn 60 credits towards graduation (9th grade) and 120 credits (10th grade) by the end of the year to move to the next grade level. If your scholar is not passing classes, night school is offered for 9th grade scholars, and letters have gone out for those who should be attending. 10th grade scholars should stay Monday’s if failing any core course.

Unlike middle school, scholars will not be “passed on” to the next grade without earning the credit for the course (5 credits per class, if passed with C- or higher). Thank you for staying on top of where your scholar stands, and feel free to reach out to us with any questions. Here's to ending this semester stronger than we started!
