9th Grade Academy
Transitioning from middle school to high school can be challenging for students. Larger class sizes, a more rigorous workload and an increase in personal responsibility are just some of the challenges students face upon entering high school. To better prepare students and provide them with the skills and tools needed to be successful, ninth grade students begin their high school career in the Ninth Grade Academy at Discovery High School. Our goal is to provide each ninth grade student with a rigorous and nurturing environment for a successful transition from middle school to high school.
During their ninth grade year, students will gain exposure to the other College and Career Academies at Discovery High School. Choosing the right career pathway in one of the College and Career Academies is an important decision that students will make during their ninth grade year. Providing students with this exposure allows them a chance to evaluate each of the Academies and make a clear and educated choice of the pathway they will follow during their years at Discovery High School.
