On Thursday, May 17, Hightower Administration and Faculty were recognized by the CCSD Board of Education for achieving the prestigious AdvancED STEM Certification. This certification recognizes that our STEM educational programs have met the rigor and substance vital to creating and sustaining superior, student-centered STEM teaching and learning programs. We are committed to preparing our learners for the careers of tomorrow by continuing to foster and perpetuate their enthusiasm for STEM disciplines today. Our focus on STEM, demonstrates our continued commitment to “Learning through ENGAGEMENT, PERFORMANCE, APPLICATION. “


2018-19 AC Placement

Parents, we understand everyone’s eagerness to discuss class placement for next school year.  We are using EOG Milestones and RI/MI assessment data in conjunction with class performance to help make these decisions.  Since these scores are not yet available to us, we will be making decisions into the summer.   We felt it would be helpful to make you aware of this process, so you could better understand our inability to fully-discuss your child’s potential placement for next school year.

Course requests (meaning assigned courses for next year, not the particular daily schedule) will be made available in ParentVue late July.  You will be notified when this becomes available.

Thank you for your understanding, and we look forward to a wonderful 2018-19 school year!
