Hartland High School Challenges Students to Do Their Best
When you have kids, finding a new home comes with the added challenge of having to find a home near an excellent school. Lots of information about schools is readily available to the general public, such as how well they perform on standardized tests and whether or not their sports teams have won championship titles. However, there are many other things you might be wondering about that aren’t so easy to look up, such as how what the school does to challenge students to reach their full potential.
Although there isn’t a standardized test score to reflect how challenging a school is, The Washington Post looks into that very matter and releases annual lists of the most challenging high schools in each state. In 2014, Hartland High School, near our Hartland Meadows community, was rated the 37th most challenging high school in Michigan!
When you look at the classes and extracurricular activities offered at Hartland High School, it’s easy to see how they earned that title. They offer a very wide variety of class options that enable students to pursue many different interests. Even the basic subjects every high school student has to take, such as language arts, science, and social studies, have many different courses available to help keep things interesting. In addition to standard English classes, there are also fun classes like theater, and creative writing, just to name a few. The math department runs the gamut from Algebra to Calculus and Trigonometry. With so many different classes available, students will never feel limited!
If there are certain subjects your teenager particularly excels at, they may have a chance to study them more extensively through advanced placement programs. Hartland High School offers a lot of different advanced placement classes in different subjects, including math, science, foreign language, and social studies. In the class of 2015, 67% of Hartland High’s advanced placement students earned a 3 or higher on their exams!
Students of Hartland High also have the chance to earn college credits while still in high school. Hartland High School has partnered with the University of Michigan – Flint to offer a dual enrollment program for students interested in law/criminal justice, medical science, business, or engineering. If your teenager is interested in attending school at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, this could be an excellent opportunity since credits earned through the dual enrollment program are transferrable to the University of Michigan – Ann Arbor.
