The James E. Groppi staff welcomes you back! We have a positive attitude and sincere desire to work with your child(ren) as he/she works toward obtaining their high school diplomas. Over the past two years we have had tremendous success in graduating students.
Placement at James E Groppi is voluntary. If our format does not fit your needs please let us know and we will assist you in finding the right spot for your student. Our scheduling includes an A.M. and a P.M. session that include three hour long class periods. Students will be assigned either the morning or afternoon session.
In addition to our basic half day format, we offer our students hot lunches and the opportunity to participate in our various “extra” classes such as music production and parenting. The school day for A.M. students began at 8:00 a.m. and ends at 11:05 a.m. Students in the P.M. sessions began at 11:35 a.m. and ends at 2:40 p.m. Please be advised that during the day computer labs are available for students who would like to participate in the Edgenuity Program. Participating in the computer based curriculum will speed up progress towards graduation.
Students will receive their schedules on the first day of the term; No changes will be made on the first day. They will, however, have the opportunities to meet with the guidance counselor for an individual course review at a later date.
If your child is at least 17.5 years old I encourage you to investigate the GED-02 program. This pathway for graduation utilizes a series of tests that students pass in order to demonstrate they have high school level knowledge in the core curricular areas. In order to participate, however, students need to demonstrate a ninth grade reading level. Our GED teacher will be available in August to administer the pretest for all interested students.
