SAVE OUR STUDENTS BY SAYING NO TO INFERIOR EDUCATION!
The Mission of Atwater High School is to provide students with a diverse educational experience that develops academic, technical, and social skill sets in preparation for college, careers, and life.
While many schools are adding programs and increasing the rigor in their programs TO SET THEIR STUDENTS UP FOR SUCCESS, we have reason to believe that our school is diminishing these programs and essentially setting our students up for FAILURE!!!!!
- SAY NO TO ELIMINATING OUR AP COURSES AND LIMITING OUR COURSE OPTIONS
If a student to teacher ratio is smaller than “usual”, the class should not be removed. Not only has research shown, but it is common sense that students in smaller classes perform better.
- SAY NO TO INFERIOR EDUCATION
Physics, AP Chemistry, AP US History, and the other AP classes are about to be eliminated!!!!!!! These courses make students competitive for colleges and other life opportunities. Removing these courses can ruin a student’s chance to be competitive as an applicant. Atwater High School has very few AP courses, so why take away what little we have? At this point every rigorous class is valuable.
- SAY YES TO EXPANDING THE STEM AREAS THAT WILL PAVE THE WAY TO SUCCESS
While all other schools are expanding their STEM Program in order to better prepare their students for college, a career, and life our school is removing courses. We should expand our STEM Program and improve on our programs instead of tearing them apart.
