The school's current objectives for curriculum improvement are to strengthen reading and writing skills and to establish schoolwide computer literacy by 1985. Action plans have been established for each objective. As part of ongoing curriculum improvement efforts, administrative teams identify areas of concern, then work with the principals and subject area teachers to accomplish established goals. A six-member guidance team assists students in meeting school graduation requirements. The guidance department features a strong career planning program. Varied teaching strategies in academic subjects include team taught courses, laboratory approach, and a variety of skill level courses from remedial to gifted. (LP)
