Program 2

Jupiter Grades

Jupiter Grades is an alternative grading platform used by the majority of our teachers. They find the real-time access to grades and missing assignments helps students and parents stay on top of their classes, and reduces misunderstanding between teachers and students/parents. Teachers can set up communication through Jupiter Grades to parents and students via text messages, saving them time from the old method of emails.

Special Projects

The Association purchased an electronic marquee in 2013/14, a laser cutter in 2014/15, and a vinyl cutter in 2014/15. The marquee helps the school communicate with the school community, as well as the larger community. The laser and vinyl cutters have helped many classes incorporate hands-on learning, from art to math to English classes.
