Juniors

What to expect in the 11th grade:

Your 11th grade year is a big time in high school because you are transitioning into a life after high school--planning, researching, and working towards the finish-line for your senior year.

Throughout the year, counselors visit junior classrooms to get students thinking about planning their senior year and transitioning to life after high school. In the Spring semester, counselors will invite students and their parents to individual meetings to discuss postsecondary planning, including college, career, and military potentials.

ADVISORY & TUTORING

ADVISORY: Each day, students have mid-day tutoring (30 mins.), called Advisory. It is very important to utilize this time to get help from teachers or to work on school work. Use this time wisely to get help when you have your teachers in front of you and cut down on potential homework.

TUTORING: All students have access to tutoring in Room 109, Tuesday-Thursday from 4:05 to 5:05. Don't wait till you are failing a class, if you need help, take advantage of this free tutoring to stay on target with your grades and study!

COMMUNITY SERVICE:

By the time you graduate, you will need to complete a minimum of 10 hours of community service throughout your time in high school. You may start logging these hours now. Check out the "Resources" tab to the right and select "Community Service." There, you will see some suggestions for where you could complete service hours. Be sure to print a community service form, get it signed by your non-parent supervisor, then turn the form into your counselor.

Remember, most anything that is non-paid, non-required, and takes place outside of the school day may count toward your community service requirement.      Community service form

NAVIANCE:

This is a resource MHS is actively using to encourage students in researching any post-secondary (after high school) ambitions you want to achieve. Naviance is a wealth of information on national, state, and local colleges, universities, careers, and financial aid opportunities.
