A DAY IN SPA'S ILP
A student attends school each day between 7:45 am - 2:30 pm,
just like their peers who will be attending classes in other locations.
When on campus ILP students will be involved in teacher led student skill groups, study groups, a group project session, and working alone on their determined courses.
Additionally, they will be able to attend all of their preferred Performing Arts classes (Dance, Music, Theater, Media and Tech classes) from our amazing teachers.
Students' ILP schedules will be flexibly with their traditional classes that maximizes their learning opportunities during the school day. Students will also have access to attend courses offered at Highland High School for concurrent enrollment or specialty classes that best fit each student's needs and goals.
A PERSONALIZED ENVIRONMENT
Through the personalized education plan, a student may take anywhere from one to eight courses at a time. We believe that managing three to five courses at a time creates opportunities for students to find immediate success in their courses. A student may complete a course as quickly as they demonstrate competency, with the capacity to begin taking a new course immediately thereafter. This approach allows students the capacity to focus more deeply on fewer subjects at a time if they choose, thus increasing their motivation, sense of accomplishment, and empowered self-paced learning.
