Maple High School provides alternatives and interventions for students that find traditional comprehensive high school programs unable to meet their particular needs. The mission of the school is to ensure that all students learn, make progress towards graduation, and become thinking, contributing members of society. Maple provides each student with an individual learning plan (ILP) that is followed daily. A homeroom teacher who knows them well, and support from the office and counseling staff helps them stay on track for a bright and promising future.
At Maple, we expect each student to show improvement in three areas: Academics, Behavior, and Attendance, during each six week session. This year Maple is again focused on providing interventions for students still needing to pass the California High School Exit Exam (CAHSEE) so they can graduate. This year we will also be focusing on the Critical Teaching Attributes that help ensure student success. Maple has been responding to the needs of our students by adjusting the goals in our School Plan. We are focusing on scheduling students appropriately so that they are well prepared for state testing. Maple staff is excited to share our program with the Western Association of School and Colleges committee in February, and we are working hard to maintain our WASC status.
Maple staff has had updated training in BEST practices and Response to Intervention this year. It is our intention that students have a safe and effective campus where the focus is on graduation and student success.
As always Maple staff strives to create a warm, caring, “family atmosphere,” to promote personal responsibility, self respect, and overall accountability for student conduct and academic success.
