CHS Español Learning Resource Center
We are so excited to announce our new Español Learning Resource Center featuring specific resources for our Spanish-speaking students! The Español Learning Resource Center provides our courses translated into Spanish for students who need extra assistance with the English Language. Students can simply click a button and open a new tab to the Learning Center to get access to Spanish translations of course content, the student and parent handbook, and other forms. CHS is also working on ESOL courses (English for Speakers of Other Languages) and will be providing an opportunity for students to earn a certificate in ESOL coming in 2019. CHS is growing and continuing to find new ways to serve our students to help them achieve economic and social mobility, and achieve their dreams.
Teen Mom Pathway
The Teen Mom Program is a new arrangement for learning that groups a set of “innovative” academic elective courses around the day-to-day activities of teen mom attending high school. The program is designed to support the goal of the teen mom to complete high school while at the same time fulfilling their parenting responsibilities. The programs focus is to “educate the parent to educate the child.
From the desk of your Director of Academics
I'm Emily Dewey, your Director of Academics at Citizens' High School. To all of our new students who joined the CHS in 2018, welcome! And for our returning students, it’s great to see your continued success! Thank you for being part of the CHS family. Now that we’ve gotten the last scraps of confetti out of our hair, it’s time to reflect on where we’ve been in 2018 and where we’re headed in the New Year. In the Academic Department at CHS, we're doing just that.
2018 was an exciting year for our faculty, staff, and students! We’ve been hard at work revamping our curriculum, creating new courses, and starting new programs all with YOU in mind. This year we revamped our nearly 40 year-old pen and paper style of learning with CHS Unplugged. We also launched our newest and most engaging method of instructional delivery: CHS Online. While you’ll find the same educational material in both modes of instructional delivery, CHS Online gives you have access to interactive content that allows you to truly engage in the material that you’re learning. So many of you have joined us in our new and exciting venture into online learning and in 2019, we hope to see more of you giving CHS Online a try. We know you won’t be disappointed. As we move into 2019, we’re launching even more creative ways to help you reach your educational goals. With new classes including exclusive elective pathways, you’ll be able to tailor your high school education like never before.
My door is always open so if you ever have any comments or suggestions, or maybe there’s a class that you would like to see published at CHS, feel free to reach out anytime at firstname.lastname@example.org. I look forward hearing about all the awesome adventures you will be embarking on in 2019. See you in class!
