Gearing up for College Readiness
Rogers, Larry E.
Principal Leadership, v11 n4 p34-38 Dec 2010
Helping students make the transition to high school and preparing them for postsecondary learning is built into the day-to-day processes at Statesville (NC) High School. The author and his staff members always strive to do what is best for the students. Because statistics indicate that the freshman class is always the largest and the senior class the smallest, they have implemented several transitional programs and processes that make the move from middle school to high school and beyond successful for the majority of their students. The programs they have in place help students make the transition to high school, be successful in high school, keep their eye on graduating on time, and be ready to go to college. The growth and improvement in their attendance and end-of-course (EOC) test scores has shown that they are on the right track. (Contains 1 figure.)
