Dear Board Members and Dr. Werner:
We the undersigned request that History honors at Thornton Junior High School be allowed to continue in the next school year (2010-2011). Here is some of our resaons:
- We believe that a rigorous curriculum in history is imperative for students who wish to pursue AP classes in history in high school.
- History is a core curriculum and an A-G requirement for admission to any University of California schools and junior high school is the stepping stone for a successful path in this area.
- Thornton Jr. High has had this program in place since the past 10 years and it has provided students with a rich academic experience and much success in high school.
- Keeping a honors history program does not impact the current budget, nor does it require additional funds or teaching staff.
Parents and Students of Thornton Jr. High School.
