A Special Note
It is extremely important for students to realize that their performance in high school will have a great impact on their future. Many employers require applicants to have a high school diploma before they will be considered for employment, and a diploma is required for enlistment in the Armed Services. High school grades are an important factor in determining whether or not a student will attend college, and excellent grades are essential to gaining admission to many of the best colleges and universities. Participation in athletics, student government, band, choir, drama, or other extracurricular activities not only make the high school experience more enjoyable, but sometimes can also be important in gaining access to some colleges and universities, and such activities often result in the development of rewarding lifelong interests. Students and parents should be aware that regular attendance is essential to good performance in high school.
