Please find information below about what our students can expect from us and what we expect from our students. Communication plays a major role in the success of a RISE or Flyer student, so please don’t hesitate to call or email us with any questions or concerns.

RISE Program Description:

The RISE and Flyer Programs are designed to help students achieve their academic goals in an alternative setting. It is our goal to offer each student a flexible and authentic learning experience that maintains the level of rigor found in a traditional classroom.


Teacher Commitment:

Our commitment to our students is to work with each individual to determine how best to meet his or her learning needs and educational goals. We are aware that every student lives a different life filled with different challenges and that special circumstances may arise which result in the need to monitor and adjust.  


Student Commitment:

In order for us to assist you, we ask that you be open and honest with us regarding any special needs or circumstances that may impact your learning. Your communication with us is necessary for your success in this program. Also, it is important to be in class and focused. Consistent attendance is vital to completing this course in a timely fashion.  



Grading will vary by course.  Students and parents will be able to monitor progress and grades through Skyward or Odysseyware.
