GRADUATION! 
Advantages of HS Credit during MS
Opportunities for advanced course work in high
school.
Rigorous program of study
Preparation for the rigors of high school
Challenge
Like-minded peer group who are serious about
their education.
Advantages of HS Credit during MS
Academic rigor too much NOW.
If students leave the accelerated track,
they could have the potential of not
returning when if they had waited
another year would be cognitively ready
for the challenge.
The low down…
Have high but reasonable expectations
If this is not the time for the acceleration
of curriculum, it could be the right time
soon.
Encourage your students to have other
interest including sports, clubs, church,
outside activities, hobbies.
