You can earn an International Baccalaureate (IB) diploma at Harrison Preparatory School or take coursework that leads to a career in education, business or medicine at Clover Park or Lakes High Schools. You can earn college credit while attending high school in all three high schools.

The mission of CPSD is to ensure each child learns what he or she needs to know to succeed and contribute to the community. There are no limits to what you can accomplish through perseverance, making good choices and taking advantage of the diverse course offerings available to ensure you are prepared for college, career and life.

Sincerely,

Debbie LeBeau

Superintendent

General Information

This course guide gives you information about all courses that may be offered in Clover Park School District’s (CPSD) two regular high schools. It also includes information about specific courses offered in CPSD’s school of choice that serve students in grades 6-12, Harrison Preparatory School. Harrison Prep may package courses under different names, may integrate and combine courses, and may change the sequence of courses, but its curriculum will still satisfy the same basic requirements as other district courses.

SCHEDULING

We hope this guide will answer all of your questions as you decide what high school courses to register for next year. The courses in this guide will be offered next year only if enough students at each school register this spring to fill a class. So, it is very important that you think carefully about your choices now, including alternative selections, so that the courses you want will be available next year at your school. Another reason for students and parents to take spring registration very seriously is that students will be committed to their schedule. Changing student schedules will be done only under exceptional circumstances. Desire to have a common lunch with a friend, to be in the same class with a friend, to have a different teacher, preference for a different elective, or similar personal preferences will not be accepted as reasons for schedule changes. The choices you make now will determine your schedule. If you cannot find the answers you need, or if you would like to have individual help in planning your program, please contact an administrator or counselor at your school.

  • Clover Park High School................(253) 583-5500
  • Lakes High School.........................(253) 583-5550
  • Harrison Preparatory School...........(253) 583-5418

COUNSELING PROGRAM

All school counseling programs will include the following elements: guidance curriculum, individual student planning, responsive services, and systems support for the counseling program.

The focus of the counseling department is to help students with academic and career planning and to foster personal exploration, selfawareness, and social growth. Students are encouraged to set realistic yet challenging goals, to make responsible decisions, to understand the consequences of their actions, and to learn to self-advocate.

Students should contact a counselor if they have questions about transitions between schools, registration, course selection, interpretation and use of test results, or graduation requirements. High school counselors assist students with academic, career, college, and personal questions. Visit or call the counseling center or career center to make an appointment with your counselor.

Counselors offer a wide variety of services, resources and activities:

  • Visit middle schools during the prior school year to provide a smooth transition from middle school to high school.
  • Assist students in planning, selecting and successfully completing middle and high school courses and completing the High School and Beyond Plan required for high school graduation.
  • Teach students (in classrooms) about the intricacies of college admission, how to develop and sustain study habits and develop personal/social support systems.
  • Provide students and families with information about course selection/registration, college admissions testing, financial aid, socioemotional issues, mental health resources.
  • Facilitate outreach with community mental health support agencies.
  • Monitor students’ academic progress and assist student in developing plans to support students so that they are successful in resolving problems in doing well in school and classes.
  • Provide a program to prepare students for an education beyond high school.
  • Develop and lead groups with topics ranging from body image, selfesteem to academic improvement.
  • Assist students with issues, academic or personal, that are or may be interfering with academic performance.

Career specialists help students:

  • Develop an awareness of self (interests, aptitudes). 
  • Explore a variety of careers (speakers, field trips, and internships).
  • Examine the educational requirements for their chosen careers.
  • Develop job-seeking skills.

Successful Completion of Middle School

STUDENTS HELD ACCOUNTABLE FOR THEIR MIDDLE SCHOOL PERFORMANCE

Successful Completion of Middle School Coursework Expected

Successful completion of middle school occurs when a student meets the academic expectations of the required program. Students who experience difficulty in doing this may be assigned to Tutorial and/or placed in an academic support course that runs either during the school day, before or after school, or in the summer so that they can receive additional assistance and help in achieving academic success.

MIDDLE SCHOOL COURSE REQUIREMENTS

  • Three years of Language Arts and Social Studies taken in 6th, 7th, and 8th grade. These classes may be offered during two separate periods or as a two-period block.
  • Three years of Mathematics taken in 6th, 7th and 8th grade.
  • Three years of Science taken in 6th, 7th and 8th grade.
  • Three semesters of Physical Education (one semester taken in 6th, 7th and 8th grade).

HIGH SCHOOL CREDIT FOR COURSES TAKEN IN MIDDLE SCHOOL (GRADES 7 & 8)

District policy allows students to receive high-school credit for some middle school courses.

  • High school credit for designated middle school courses may be requested once the student is in high school by completing the High School Credit for Middle School Course Request Form. The request can then be made at any time up to the point a student graduates from high school, though it is strongly recommended this request be made prior to the end of a student’s junior year. Please note that once the grades are recorded on the high school transcript the grade and credit cannot be removed and are included in the computation of the student’s grade point average. Designated courses include:
  • Algebra 1, Geometry and subsequent courses in the mathematics sequence.
  • World Language courses, one credit is awarded for the completion of courses 1A and 1B.
  • Incoming 9th-grade students who did not attend a Clover Park middle school, who wish to request high school credit for courses taken prior to enrollment in Clover Park School District, must submit a grade report from their former school that includes a copy of the course descriptions.

HEALTH EXAMINATION

A health examination is required of all students participating in interscholastic sports every two years.

Information for High School Students

FULL SCHEDULE REQUIREMENT

  • All 9th and 10th graders must take eight credit-producing classes. As a general rule, these students may not take any non-credit class such as Office, Library or Teacher Assistant.
  • All 11th and 12th graders must take a minimum of seven creditproducing classes. If they register for eight credits in the spring, they will be required to take eight credits throughout the following school year. Spring registration is binding in this regard and requires serious advance thought.
  • For 11th or 12th graders, an open period must be first or fifth, or fourth or eigth period. There are no open periods during the middle of the school day. Students are expected to be off school grounds or in a supervised non-credit class during an open period. An 11th or 12th grader who is on campus for all eight periods may serve as a Teacher Assistant or another non-credit option, such as an Office or Library Assistant, as long as they have met standard on all state assessments.

COMMUNITY SERVICE GRADUATION REQUIREMENT

Students must earn five (5) hours of Community Service per school year in attendance at CPSD as one of their graduation requirements. Students may begin to earn these hours once they complete their eighth (8th) grade year. The five hours may be earned all at one time, or in any manner that meets the student’s schedule, during each of his/her high school years, but must be completed prior to the student’s participation in a commencement ceremony and the granting of a diploma.

Community Service is any service that is done for non-profit agencies and organizations and/or religious organizations. School service is also included. To assure that the service is appropriate for this requirement, refer to the guidelines on the Verification of Community Service Form. If students have a problem with locating an agency or finding a way to meet this requirement, they should work with their counselor.

Prepare Now For Your Future

The Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate Programs

The choices you make now will determine the future course of your life. By taking college-level Advanced Placement (AP) or International Baccalaureate (IB) classes you enter a world of knowledge and a learning environment that you might not otherwise experience in high school; by taking AP or IB exams, you have the opportunity to earn credit or advanced standing at many of the nation’s colleges and universities.

Advanced Placement courses are offered in all our high schools. While the availability of classes differ among the schools, in Clover Park School District we offer a variety of AP courses ranging from English, US History, to Statistics, Calculus, Biology and Chemistry, to Spanish Language, Music Theory and Art Portfolio. Additional courses can be found later in catalog. We try to provide a broad selection of courses to appeal to a wide variety of student interests.

The International Baccalaureate Diploma Program (IB) is located at Harrison Preparatory School. The 2-year IB Diploma Program is designed to meet international standards of excellence and is typically completed by students in grades 11 and 12. IB features a comprehensive and broadly based curriculum that includes languages, social studies, science, mathematics, and electives culminating with examinations in six subject areas.

WHY SHOULD YOU SIGN UP FOR AP OR IB COURSES?

The greatest benefit of AP/IB is the experience of taking academic courses in an enriched environment with classmates who, like you, are seeking intellectual challenge, are motivated to learn, and are committed to excellence. Participating in these courses is going to give you a head start on exactly the sort of work you will confront in college. You will improve your writing skills and sharpen your problem-solving techniques; develop the study habits necessary for tackling rigorous coursework; assume the responsibility of reasoning, analyzing, and understanding for yourself; and study subjects in greater depth and detail.

WHAT ARE THE REQUIREMENTS?

 AP/IB courses are challenging courses; however, we offer just the classes you need in order to be well prepared. In this Course Catalog you will find a flowchart for many of the content areas that describes a recommended course sequence leading up to AP and IB courses. Other than that, the only requirements for becoming an AP/IB student are a curiosity about the subject you plan to study and the willingness to work hard.

WANT TO LEARN MORE ABOUT ADVANCED PLACEMENT OR THE INTERNATIONAL BACCALAUREATE PROGRAM?

 For more information about either of these programs you can check with your school counselor. Additional information may also be found online at:

Clover Park School District High School Programs

Clover Park High School

Clover Park High School is a comprehensive, grades 9 through 12 high school with a small school feel.

Ninth grade students are in a grade level specific smaller learning community (SLC). The ninth grade SLC program includes foundational courses in the humanities as well as an introductory science, technology, and math sequence as a preparation for grades 10-12. The ninth grade smaller learning community provides the necessary background to enable students to make an appropriate choice into pathway/major focus for grades 10-12. Another key attribute of that foundational core is the development of academic skills and traits that establish high expectations and standards, habits of success, and social skills necessary for citizenship, career, and college-readiness.

Tenth grade students continue a schedule that emphasizes the core curriculum: Pre-AP English, a Western Studies component, Geometry, and Biology. Similarly to ninth grade students, second year high school students have options when contemplating their elective classes. Tenth grade students should be deliberate about pursuing a schedule that prepares them academically for post-secondary experiences. All tenth grade students are rigorously preparing for high school exit exams, or Smarter Balance Assessments that will be taken in the 11th grade. Additionally, 10th grade students begin working on their Pathway or Major designation in Career and Technical Education coursework.

Eleventh grade students continue an emphasis of the core curriculum requirements: an American Studies component that includes AP English or English 11; US History, or AP US History; Algebra II or higher; and Chemistry or another lab science. Eleventh grade students will also be working toward their CTE program completion certificate in an area of study that aligns their core curriculum work with a career interest. Students should be deliberate about selecting a schedule that challenges them and prepares them for admission to Washington colleges and universities. Successful completion of continuing and advanced science, math, and writing courses are extremely important predictors of future student success.

Twelfth grade students will complete their program of study and all of the coursework needed to demonstrate mastery of the core curriculum: a Contemporary Studies component that includes English 12or AP Literature; Contemporary Affairs or AP US Government; and are encouraged to take a fourth year of math and/or science. Twelfth grade students should be working on a schedule that challenges them academically and completes required courses for admission to Washington colleges and universities. Throughout high school students will be working to establish and maintain a High School and Beyond Plan. This is also a graduation requirement upon completion of the 12th grade year. The HSBP is a compilation of thoughtful exercises designed to help students design a post-secondary plan that is customized for them and leads to a high level of preparation for success after high school. This plan is built and maintained in each advisory. The advisory teacher will continue with his/ her advisory students throughout grades 9 through 12 in order to build relationships and maintain a consistent focus on the plan.

Lakes High School

Lakes High School is structured into three academies: 9th Grade Success Academy, 10th Grade Success Academy, and 11th/12th Grade Pathways Academy. All Lakes High School students will participate in Lancer Link. This is an advisory group that students will attend to help them prepare for graduation. Students will stay with the same group and advisor for the entire four years at Lakes. Each student will keep a portfolio of their high school work and have an opportunity to share it with their parents each year through student portfolio conferencing in the fall and spring. In their senior year, students will create a presentation for their state required High School and Beyond Plan.

Ninth Grade Success Academy supports students to build a strong academic base. Test data and previous academic accomplishments are used to provide students and parents scheduling support ensuring students are placed in classes that will meet their academic needs. The academy ensures foundational core courses in English, Math, Science, Social Studies, Health, Fitness, and electives that prepare students for their academic pathway through grades 10-12 and beyond. Students will develop the foundational core to establish the skills for high expectations and standards, habits of success, and social skills necessary for citizenship, career, and college-readiness. A highlight for this academy is that all 9th grade students are provided mentors to support their transition from middle school to the high school.

Tenth Grade Success Academy continues the work of the Ninth Grade Success Academy to support students in building a solid academic foundation. The academy ensures foundational core courses in English, Math, Science, Social Studies, and CTE. College bound students will have additional opportunities to challenge their academic prowess with the AP course offerings of AP English Composition, AP World History, AP European History, AP Environmental History, and AP Calculus A/B. This academy develops the students’ ongoing understanding of the available pathways to prepare them for the remainder of their high school career.

11th/12th Grade Pathway Academy guides students to take courses that position them to be competitive for admission to the college and/or career of their choice. The Pathway Academy consists of:

  • Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM)
  • Health and Human Services
  • Arts and Communication
  • Business and Marketing
 

Students will select a pathway that interests them, and through specific pathway courses and authentic experiences (i.e., job shadowing and Career Connections). College bound students will have opportunities to continue to challenge their academic prowess with the AP course offerings of AP English Literature, AP US History, AP American Government, AP Chemistry, AP Biology, AP Spanish, AP Studio Art, AP Music Theory, AP Statistics, and AP Calculus B/C. Students will also choose courses that enhance career readiness through their completion of program certifications (i.e., Adobe, MOUS, CPR), being program completers (students completing 360 hours in a CTE program). Graduates are proud to say, “Once a Lancer, Always a Lancer.”

Harrison Preparatory School

Lt. General William H. Harrison Preparatory School is an International Baccalaureate World School designed to provide a seamless secondary school experience for students in grades six through twelve.

Harrison Preparatory is a school of choice for all middle and high school students in Clover Park School District (CPSD). The continuity of program spans both middle and high school and gives students the opportunity to build relationships without transitional adjustments. Because of this continuity, preparation for challenging and rewarding high school courses can start at sixth grade.

International Baccalaureate (IB)

The International Baccalaureate (IB) is Harrison Preparatory School’s signature program. As of February 2015, Harrison is an authorized IB Diploma Programme School and will begin offering DP courses starting in the 2015-16 academic year. The IB Diploma Programme is for students aged 16-19 (grades 11 and 12), and the MYP will serve as preparation for the internationally renowned DP program. IB Middle Years Programme (MYP) Harrison currently offers the MYP designed for students in grades 6 through 10. The MYP aims to develop active learners and internationally-minded young people who can empathize with others and pursue lives of purpose and meaning. Implementation of the program empowers students to inquire into wide ranges of significant local, national and global issues. The goal is to cultivate young people who are creative, critical and reflective thinkers. Concurrently, students receive access to the best of Clover Park School District’s curriculum and the Common Core State Standards as well as state standardized testing.

As part of the MYP requirements, students will participate in eight subject areas including: English, Spanish, History, Math, Science, Arts, and Technology. Additionally, in the fifth year of the program (10th grade), students will demonstrate their culminating knowledge in a research-based Personal Project. They choose a topic of interest, complete research and an action plan to show how they grew as a result.

What is the Diploma Programme?

The DP curriculum is made up of six subject groups and the DP Core. Each class is a 2-year continuous course at the end of which students take an exam. These courses teach students to think deeply about the subject matter and to see connections between all disciplines.

In addition to the six subject groups, students who commit to pursuing the full IB diploma will have access to the Core, comprised of a class called Theory of Knowledge (TOK) as well as participating in Creativity, Action, Service (CAS) and the Extended Essay (EE). Through the DP Core, students reflect on the nature of knowledge, complete independent research and develop projects that reflect their understanding of Creativity, Action, and Service.

Who can take DP courses?

The DP is open to any student aged 16 to 19 at schools, like Harrison Preparatory that have been authorized to implement the program, provided that they’ve taken and been successful in all prerequisite courses.

Students will have two options within the Diploma Programme: 1) to become a Diploma Candidate and possibly earn an IB diploma in addition to the CPSD high school diploma, or 2) to become a Certificate Candidate. These options allow for some flexibility depending on the level of challenge that a student wants to undertake.

CPSD Equivalency Credits

 Most graduation course requirements are met by successfully completing specified courses; however, some requirements may be met by successfully completing equivalency courses.

Important points to remember:

  • An equivalency course must be completed in its entirety in order for “equivalency credit” to be granted.
  • An equivalency waiver may satisfy two graduation requirements: one in the curriculum area in which a course is offered and one in the curriculum area in which the course appears on the approved list.
  • No course shall be worth more than the credit it has been assigned. For instance, a semester course which is .5 credits may not be worth more than .5 credits.
  • Equivalencies may not satisfy college admission requirements. Please check with the individual colleges for clarification.

*** Per State Board of Education a Personalized Pathway Requirement

School Program

 The school year at the high school is divided into two 18-week semesters. One credit is earned for a full year. One-half credit is earned for one semester.

The first honor roll is an alphabetically arranged list of all students achieving a grade point average of 3.67 or above. The second honor roll is a list of students achieving a grade point average of at least 3.17 to 3.66.

Academic courses are defined as those in the department of English, world language, mathematics, science, social studies, and other courses.

The State Board of Education determines the numerical value of letter grades:

A pass/fail option may be used in place of the A-F grading scale in a course not classified as an academic course and not required for graduation. A Pass/Fail grade will not be figured in the grade point if a “P” grade is earned. An “F” grade will, however, be included in determining the grade point average.

Parents or adult students must request the pass/fail option within ten (10) days of the beginning of a course. The principal may authorize pass/fail after consultation with parents, students, and counselor after ten days.

Honors at Graduation

Students who have achieved a cumulative grade average of 3.50 or higher for grades 9, 10, 11, and 12 will be recognized as honor graduates. This determination will be made at the end of the first semester of grade 12 and Running Start students after first quarter of senior year.


Classes for Potential College Credit

Students may wish to register for a course that may provide an opportunity for college credit, like Advanced Placement or College in the High School or IB. As in all registrations, space availability and the student’s own course schedule may have an impact on that request. If a student has any questions about this process, she or he should contact an administrator. These requests must be finalized prior to the beginning of the semester. Many courses are also available for college credit via the Tech Prep program. Please see page 8 for more information on Tech Prep.

Class Enrollment

  1. Students have up until the tenth day of class to drop a class from their schedule.
  2. Students who are enrolled in year-long classes cannot drop that class at second semester, unless principal approves.
  3. If principal approves and student is withdrawn from the course, the student will receive a “W” (withdrawn) on their transcript. If a student is earning an “F” (failure) at the time of withdrawal, an “F” will be noted on their transcript.
  4. Students enrolled in the Open Doors Youth Reengagement Program may not withdraw to enroll in a CPSD comprehensive high school program except within the first 10 days of the beginning of the course.
  5. Eligible students may be considered for enrollment into the Open Door Youth Reengagement Program at any time.

High School Course Requirements for College Entrance

All colleges strongly recommend a varied, in-depth, academic course of study.

Students should take as many “core” courses as possible: English, mathematics, science, social studies and world language. All student schedules should contain creative arts and skill courses to complement core studies.

Applications for admission to Washington 2-year and 4-year institutions are available on-line or from your counselor. Admission forms for out-ofstate colleges must be obtained on-line or by writing to the admissions office of that institution. Complete the application forms and make arrangements with the counselor to send a transcript. Transcripts should be requested from the School Registrar.

The state supported four-year colleges generally require a 2.5 or higher grade average for your 9th, 10th and 11th grades. Private colleges often have no specific grade average requirements, but the higher your grades — so long as these grades are in academic courses — the greater your chances of being accepted and succeeding when enrolled. Community colleges in Washington require that you have a high school diploma and have passed a replacement test.

The following sample is considered a strong college preparatory schedule in the State of Washington:
Recommended Course Area

English.................................................................................. 4 years
College Preparatory Math........................................................ 4 years
(through 2nd year Algebra or higher)
Science (2 years laboratory)...................................................... 3 years
World Language..................................................................... 3 years
Social Studies...................................................................... 3.5 years
Arts.........................................................................................1 year
Additional Electives from the above areas.........................1-1/2 full years

State Required Testing

 Twelfth grade students (Class of 2016) and those classes thereafter in the state of Washington, are required to meet standard on the state required assessments. The purpose of these assessments is to measure student achievement against the grade level expectations that are statewide standards and is an assessment of a student’s ability to understand and apply knowledge in Reading, Writing, Mathematics and Science. Students should check with their counselor about what is required for their specific graduation year as it varies.

The Clover Park School District will assist students in reducing the cost of each test. Information on this assistance is available in the school guidance office.

College Credit/College Credit Options for High School Students

Clover Park School District strives to provide all students with an exemplary college preparatory education so they can succeed in college, career and life.

Advanced Placement (AP) Program

All students are encouraged to seriously consider enrollment in one or more AP courses during 10th, 11th and 12th grades. AP courses are also available to students in 9th grade. Advanced Placement courses are college-level courses offered in high school. AP courses include extensive reading. Students in AP courses may earn college credit if they perform well on rigorous national AP tests. Ask your counselor for assistance in selecting courses that will prepare you for success in any AP course that interests you. Additional information about the AP program is found on page 4 in the AP information section.

Community/Technical College “Tech Prep” Dual Credit

TECH PREP (http://pc3connect.org) is a combined secondary and post-secondary program of integrated courses allowing high school students to begin a Career and Technology Education program that leads to a two-year Associate degree or a two-year certificate and/or a four-year baccalaureate degree. To begin a Tech Prep sequence, students should enroll in a high school Career and Technical Education class that is designated as a college credit course. If the student completes the course with at least a B grade, they will receive the equivalent course credit at no cost at the participating community or technical college. Your career specialist has information on these programs.

College in the High School

This program provides high school students the opportunity to earn college credit in approved high school courses, when the equivalent course is taught at University of Washington. Clover Park students may choose to take any College in the High School course for high school credit only, choosing not to pay the University of Washington the optional fee for college credit. Contact your high school teacher of the particular courses for more information.

International Baccalaureate (IB)

The International Baccalaureate (IB) Program, located at Harrison Preparatory School, is recognized internationally as a rigorous and comprehensive curriculum, designed to challenge college-bound students. The IB program’s broad range of subjects accommodates diverse student interests and intentions while adhering to the objectives of a cohesive liberal arts education. IB courses are college-level courses offered in high school which includes frequent homework and involves extensive reading. Students in IB courses may earn college credit or advanced placement if they perform well on rigorous IB tests. For more information see specific course descriptions, or talk to a Harrison Prep counselor.

Running Start

Current Washington State legislation allows high school students to attend their local community college or technical school and earn high school credits and college credits at the same time. There are no tuition fees for the student if the number of credits does not exceed the maximum allowed. Students enrolled in Running Start must:

  •  Have junior or senior standing in high school.
  • Make application to the program during the enrollment period in March prior to the fall quarter the student wishes to attend.
  • Sign a Clover Park School District Running Start contract with parent(s)/guardian(s).
  • Enroll in courses that are approved by the high school counselor so that graduation requirements are completed in conjunction with any college coursework that may lead to an Associates degree. The student should also maintain fulltime enrollment so that the student’s graduation status is not jeopardized.
  • Be responsible for knowing the registrations date(s) and deadline(s) for district and college course registration
  • Be responsible for transportation, lab fees and books.

Students taking a quarter class through the Running Start Program (#100 and above) will be issued high school credit that reflects quarter hour participation. Generally, a five hour quarter Running Start class will equal 1.0 high school credits. Running Start courses (#100 and above) equate to .5 required and .5 elective credit. Running Start courses numbered below 100 will equal .5 high school credits. For a complete listing of these equivalent credits, please see your high school counselor. It is important to note that very specific Running Start courses are equivalent to the Clover Park School District program. Please contact your high school counselor for a listing of courses that meet CPSD requirements. The approved Running Start courses are listed in the course descriptions on the following pages.

Pierce College and Tacoma Community College Equivalent Courses

See appendix in back of course catalog.

High School Four-Year Educational Plan

On the following page is an important worksheet to help you plan the courses you will take in high school. Please be aware that your post-high school plans for college, employment, or career training may require courses beyond the graduation requirements. Also, if you want to finish up your high school program with some Advanced Placement or advanced-level vocational courses, you need to register for the necessary classes during 9th, 10th, and 11th grade.

It’s your future, so plan carefully!

You are strongly encouraged to complete your graduation requirements in the years indicated on the planning worksheet. Use the descriptions in this course guide to help you decide which courses to take in each subject area.

1Or 1 Occupational Education credit, as defined in WAC 180-51-067.

2Up to 2 credits can be waived locally based on a student’s unusual circumstances.

High School and Beyond Plan

The State of Washington requires that, prior to graduation, every student complete a plan of action for the year after high school (Grade 13). This is a graduation requirement.

Below are opportunities to support the creation of a High School and Beyond plan. Selection of course work should be based on an appraisal of student ability, attitudes, interests, and needs.

Financial Aid/Scholarships

Financial aid is available from most colleges and vocational-technical institutes. By completing the proper forms, you become a candidate for all forms of aid for which you qualify at the college, university, or technical college of your choice. Your parents must file a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) with the College Scholarship Service in Princeton, NJ, to qualify for consideration. Most of the aid funds are limited to those students who demonstrate financial need in order to attend college. In all cases, the student and family will be expected to contribute what they can. See your counselor for details about the financial aid process. The FAFSA must be filed as soon as possible after January 1 of the year the student plans to enroll in college.

You may apply for a Pell Grant by completing the FAFSA mentioned above. There are also some scholarships awarded by local organizations and regional or national competitions. When notices of these scholarships are received, they will be announced in the daily bulletin. Many of these are also granted on the basis of financial need.

Nondiscrimination statement for financial assistance announcements: The Clover Park School District will consider all applications for financial assistance programs, i.e., student loans, work compensation, grants, scholarships, special funds, subsidies, prizes, etc., without regard to race, color, national origin, gender or disability.

Career Pathways

(Supporting High School and Beyond Plan)

The goal of Career Pathways is to make learning meaningful and more focused for all students.

Career Pathways are divided into the following broad categories:

  •  Arts and Communication - Create It!
  • Business and Marketing - Promote It!
  • Health and Human Services - Care About It!
  • Science, Technology, Engineering and Math - Investigate and Plan It!

Programs of Study provide a way to intentionally plan high school course selection beginning in middle school. A program of study provides a deliberate, intentional sequence of courses and a mixture of academic and technical high school courses to prepare students for post-secondary education and career success. They increase the relevance and impact of a student’s high school education, improve graduation rates in high school and college, and focus on current demands in a global economy. Finally, they fulfill the graduation requirement for a High School and Beyond plan.

Programs of study suggest rigorous academic coursework including 4 years of math, science beyond the graduation requirement and two years of the same world language. A student who completes a program of study would be qualified to attend most 4-year universities AND be a CTE Program Completer.

High school counselors, the Career Centers and teachers have information available on Career Pathways and Programs of Study.

Career Cruising

Career Cruising (C.C.) is a Web-based career and education guidance tool available to all Clover Park School District students. Students can logon at home, the public library, a friend’s house, parent’s workplace, or at school. C.C. is a “self-contained” guided environment that does not rely on free sites.

Students create a personal account that stays with them until graduation from high school. The portfolio includes a complete student history, with academic information, interest assessments, career goals, course plan and resumes. The Internet system includes detailed profiles on over 1,100 careers, complete information on 300 majors and over 6,000 accredited 4-year colleges, 2-year colleges, vocational schools and technical schools. Information is also available on financial aid and over $5.4 billion in scholarship awards.

Counselors, career centers and teachers have information on C.C.

The Collection of Evidence (COE)

The Collection of Evidence (COE), a legislative approved alternative to meeting graduation requirements in ELA, mathematics and science is intended to assess content and skills similar to those assessed on the state test.

The COE is designed to provide students an opportunity to compile classroom generated work samples, developed over time, that demonstrate their knowledge and skills. Student work samples must be comparable to the rigor, skills, and knowledge assessed on the state test.

Standardized High School Transcripts & Diploma Awards

High school students need to know that future employers may request to see transcripts and that the decision to release them can be an important part of the process of applying for employment.

Course Retrieval

Many high school courses may be retaken for credit retrieval through Edgenuity. Courses may be retrieved through summer school or through each high school’s retention program. Please speak with your counselor about course retrieval options. Courses that can be retrieved have the coding Edgenuity Credit Retrieval (ECR) below the course number.

General Information

Harrison Prep will prepare all students for successful completion of post-secondary education. Students will receive a rigorous and continuous education based on integrated units of study tied to real world experiences. Regular athletic and music programs are not currently offered in this small school setting.

Each student will have an individualized student learning plan designed to promote the student’s mastery of core competencies. It will include how the student has demonstrated what he/she has learned.

Middle Years Programme (MYP)

The IB Middle Years Programme is the framework for instruction in grades 6-10.

  • Teachers use IB criteria to assess work within their subject areas.
  • Students in grades 6-10 take courses in all eight subject areas.
  • In the 10th grade, students complete an exhibition of their learning called the Personal Project.

Areas of Interaction (AOI)

The MYP model is a curriculum framework based on the idea that all knowledge is connected. Teachers emphasize this idea through the Areas of Interaction. These five areas are meant to help students see the inter-connectedness of their subjects. The five areas are as follows:

  • Approaches to Learning (ATL): Skills to help students become more independent in their learning;
  • Human Ingenuity (HI): The idea that humans are creative and that creations have consequences;
  • Health and Social Education: Inquiry into a range of issues including social, emotional, intellectual impacts on different cultural settings;
  • Community and Service: Helping students apply their learning to the community around them; and
  • Environments: Looking at all surrounding conditions and the impact we have on them and that they have on us.

Expectations for post-secondary education will be embedded in the curriculum from the beginning. Students explore career opportunities, build a personal portfolio and participate in an early college awareness program.

International Baccalaureate Programme

The International Baccalaureate (IB) is Harrison Preparatory School’s signature program.

Why offer the IB Program as a program of choice in the Clover Park School District?

Research shows that students participating in the MYP IB Program:

  • Build confidence in managing their own learning;
  • Learn by doing, connecting the classroom to the larger world;
  • Outperform non-IB students in critical academic skills;
  • Consistently have greater success in IB Diploma Program examinations;
  • Thrive in positive school cultures where they are engaged and motivated to excel; and
  • Develop an understanding of global challenges and a commitment to act as responsible citizens.

Linking the MYP to other IB programs

As of February 2015, Harrison is an authorized IB Diploma Programme School and will begin offering DP courses starting in the 2015-16 academic year. The IB Diploma Program is for students aged 16-19 (grades 11 and 12), and the MYP will serve as preparation for the internationally renowned DP program.

What is the Diploma Programme?

The DP curriculum is made up of six subject groups and the DP Core. Each class is a 2-year continuous course at the end of which students take an exam. These courses teach students to think deeply about the subject matter and to see connections between all disciplines.

 In addition to the six subject groups, students who commit to pursuing the full IB diploma will have access to the Core, comprised of a class called Theory of Knowledge (TOK) as well as participating in Creativity, Action, Service (CAS) and the Extended Essay (EE). Through the DP Core, students reflect on the nature of knowledge, complete independent research and develop projects that reflect their understanding of Creativity, Action, and Service.

Diverse Learning: Students take at least 50 hours of coursework in the following eight subjects to learn about the importance of all disciplines.

  • Language acquisition (Spanish starting in sixth-grade)
  • Language and Literature (English)
  • Mathematics
  • Arts (Choir and Visual Arts)
  • Design (Technology)
  • Sciences
  • Individuals and Societies (Social Studies)
  • Physical and Health Education

Who can take DP courses?

The DP is open to any student aged 16 to 19 at schools, like Harrison Preparatory that have been authorized to implement the program, provided that they’ve taken and been successful in all prerequisite courses.

Students will have two options within the Diploma Programme:

  1. To become a Diploma Candidate and possibly earn an IB diploma in addition to the CPSD high school diploma; or
  2. To become a Certificate Candidate. These options allow for some flexibility depending on the level of challenge that a student wants to undertake.

Assessment and exams

At the end of each course, students take an exam. These exams assess student work as direct evidence of achievement against the stated goals of the Diploma Programme (DP) courses. The scores on these exams can be used to determine college credit for both Diploma Candidates and Certificate Candidates, depending on the post-secondary institution. The scores will also determine if a student has earned an IB diploma in addition to their high school diplomas.

Personalized

Harrison Preparatory is a small school where students have a better opportunity to be known by staff members. Class sizes are not smaller, necessarily, but the experience is very supportive. We provide many opportunities to support students’ learning and progression like Learning Assistance Programs (LAP) during school and assistance during lunch and after school in extending learning opportunities.

Community and Service

Since 2006, beginning with Week Without Walls (WWW) and then continuing with Community and Service Days (CSD), Harrison Prep has focused attention on developing students who understand how to give back to their community. Students and teachers have been involved in developing partnerships with local non-profit organizations like Caring for Kids and the Lakewood Historical Society, as well as more widely known organizations like United Way, Relay for Life, Key Club and National Honor Society. These service opportunities have grown into learning experiences for Harrison Prep students in many different ways including Senior Projects, Job Shadows and more.

Respect and Responsibility

Respect and responsibility will be evident among adults and students in both formal and informal interactions. Students will work with faculty members to develop a student job description.

Respect and responsibility will be evident among adults and students in both formal and informal interactions. All parents are expected to partner with the school expectations of students participation in a culture of respect and responsibility.

Safety

A safe environment is essential for learning. All district policies and procedures will be used to help ensure a safe, secure school. Parents, students and staff will work closely together to develop a learning community where respect for all is honored and upheld.

Time to Collaborate

Harrison Prep includes specific and considerable time for collaboration among teachers created by organizing the daily schedule to provide time during the school day for teachers to collaborate. Teachers engage in collaborative training so they are well informed and know how to work as Professional Learning Communities (PLCs). Staff will also dedicate time for self-assessment of the academic program through feedback from students, parents, community members and critical friends.

Performance-based

The sustained teacher-student relationship is key to knowing what students are capable of and then holding them to high standards.

Training in performance assessments and specifically in measuring the application of skills, knowledge and habits will be conducted for teachers, students and parents.

School staff will create audiences for student work and continually post student work for a variety of audiences.

Technology

Students will continually use technology as an integral part of their learning. For example, they will use technology to conduct research, communicate to various audiences, create products and demonstrate learning. Teacher professional development will include a significant technology component and teachers will be expected to use technology skills in teaching, managing information and communicating with each other, students and parents.
