R-5 High School

 

R-5 High School: R-5 High School is a three-year (10-12) high school that provides students a positive, self-paced learning environment. The instruction at R-5 is individualized so that each student may enroll and progress at his or her own rate. The program consists of five academic morning classes, while in the afternoons students must either have a job or be enrolled in an approved vocational/technical program. Either of these will generate additional credit towards a diploma. Most students complete 5 to 7 credits each school year.

 

Young Parent Program: This program is designed to provide four focused hours of instruction daily to teen mothers, or soon-to-be mothers, as well as providing a nursery for their infants while they are attending class. It is a well-structured support component that helps students gain needed life skills, and learn about pregnancy and parenting and how to access community resources, in addition to meeting their academic needs

Key Performance Program: This program serves students who are 17 years or older and who are two or more years behind in credits earned.  Students who have successfully earned credits in specific math, social studies, and science classes and who have strong reading and writing skills may apply for the program.  KPP students can take this alternative pathway toward earning a high school diploma.  They must demonstrate proficiencies through several portfolios and passing all of the WorkKeys tests.  Students who are highly motivated can complete the program in 1 year.
