4 GradPoint What do our students say….  Gradpoint is working fine. Getting a faster pace to finish more classes.  Need to get more work done, but other than that….Amazing!  Everything is good for me. I like it a lot better now.  Gradpoint is going well. The more I get used to doing it the better it gets. There is nothing to really complain about.  The Gradpoint program is easier for me than regular high school.  I’m doing real good on the quiz part and it's better than switching classes….so I like it.  I like Gradpoint so much better than regular school. Working at my own pace is what I really needed.  I like it, it is a lot easier for me than traditional classroom. But I need music.  The program is doing good. I think I could pass.  How does it Work? Students work 4 hours per school day and are able to log on from outside the building to continue progress in their courses. 1 course = 1 semester’s worth of material. Students are able to progress through an entire course at their own pace, typically at a faster rate than the pace of a traditional classroom. Each lesson, quiz, and post test require students to pass with a minimum of a 70%, guaranteeing success in the courses. We celebrate each course completion! Students hang a star on the lobby bulletin board, a tradition that all students look forward to! GradPoint works well for our students, it teaches them to be self-motivated & driven to accomplish their goals; along with the support they receive from the staff and mentors.
