Save Thornton History Honors Program for School YR 2010-11

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.
We hope that our interest in preserving this program will allow you to alter your decision for the coming school year.

Thank You.


Parents and Students of Thornton Jr. High School.
