Transitions Class was created to address a desire held by teachers, parents, and students to promote a successful transition year into high school. FHS believes that students who are strongly founded in study and organizational skills, and who are committed and connected to their high school are the most likely to succeed.
We have developed a curriculum that focuses on teaching, practicing and applying skills to promote success in learning, living and working. This includes topics like: time management, listening & note taking, oral communication, research process, test-taking, learning styles, and career & college planning.
The class has two areas of focus - skills and guided study. Students will participate in an instructional activity and have time to apply their skills to their homework and tasks for other classes.
Expectations are high for all students. It is required that students maintain an organized, complete notebook for their class work, and engage in all lessons and activities.
