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.
