In the High School, students are expected to be more accountable for their daily progress and time management. They have a subject specialist for each of the six courses, and an Academic Coach for all non-instructional assistance and mentoring. Teachers are responsible for reviewing all student work and providing instructional feedback within three school days. The student is expected to move at a more consistent pace with her or his class in each subject, though there is room for flexibility.
Our Learning Coaches plays an important supportive role to help the student stay on task and to help ensure the student follows through on his or her assignments—but the student is expected to begin managing his or her own time and schedule more directly.
Our High School offers an expansive curriculum of over 150 course choices, including Core, Comprehensive, Honors and AP level courses, plus a wide variety of World Language options.
To graduate and receive a High School diploma, students must earn 24 credits in the following subject areas and be enrolled full-time for at least two consecutive semesters.
|Math||4 credits (Algebra 1 and higher)|
|Science||4 credits (must include 2 lab science credits)|
|History and Social Sciences||4 credits|
|World Language||2 credits (must be 2 credits of the same language; must be a non-English language course)|
|Physical Education||0.5 credit|
Students must complete a minimum of six (6) credits and must spend one academic year enrolled as a full-time student with IS Berne Online, to be eligible for an IS Berne Online diploma.
