How to be an Ideal Student

  • When you are at school, be ready to learn.

  • Maintain good organization skills.

  • Write down or enter in your phone important class test/quiz or deadline dates.

  • When you don’t understand something, don’t give up. Ask for help!

  • Meet with your teacher before or after school to get extra help.

  • Enroll in STEM Spartan Academy to get extra help.

  • Utilize Power Hour to remediate in a subject where you need help.

  • Do as much work while in class so there is little left to take home.
