PREVIOUS Announcements

We are making every effort to ensure that our students continue to meet the rigorous demands of the Puente Project, including, but not limited to, satisfying the A-G requirements.  Our foremost expectation is that students receive a "C" or better in all of their college prep courses.  Students who are not meeting this requirement will be placed on a contract in hopes of helping them improve their grades.  Students earning at least a 3.0 GPA (cumulative & weighted) in their A-G courses are exempt from this contract. 

 

THOSE WHO CONTINUOUSLY FAIL TO EARN A "C" OR BETTER IN THEIR A-G COURSES WILL BE REMOVED FROM THE PROGRAM INDEFINITELY   

 

Please contact Mrs. Wise if you feel your son or daughter may not be able to meet this requirement.
