Grade 9 Science MCAS
Grade 9 Students: Remember the Science MCAS test will be administered on Tuesday, June 6 and Wednesday, June 7. Please be on time and ready to test! Students will begin the day in X Block Advisory where they will review their test locations. Here is a student friendly test room location document. A handful of students will test in other rooms and will receive a pass in X Block before they report to testing.
MCAS counts! It is a graduation requirement. Demonstrating competency on MCAS is one of the state requirements for receiving a high school diploma. Do your best.
Bring your Chromebook. Students have school-issued Chromebooks and they must bring them fully charged on each testing day. It is also recommended that students bring their chargers.
Freshmen: We believe you all have the ability to be successful on this test. Your teachers have worked hard to prepare you for this moment, and we’re sure that you have worked hard as well. Being successful on this test is a way for you to demonstrate BLUE PRIDE to yourself, your family, your teachers, and the whole school community. We all believe in you!
Attention Freshmen: CTE Environmental Science Opportunity!
Next year, AHS plans to offer a Level 1 Career and Technical Education course on Environmental Studies. Current grade 9 students who are interested in the course must complete this form by Monday, June 5: Environmental Science. Please note that enrolled students will be withdrawn from their current CTE program they requested and will not be able to return to it. Below is a course synopsis.
Through science, engineering, conservation, communication, and economics, students will learn how to protect and enhance public health and the environment. The focus for 10th grade students will be on life sciences that enable them to learn how the natural environment is linked to the protection of public health. Students will be exposed to the many disciplines within the program including sustainability, energy efficiency, aquaculture, marine science, and health and safety. Students will also be operating and maintaining a freight farm, which is an indoor farm with the equivalent of one acre of farmland. The program prepares students for immediate entry into the workforce or to continue on to college to further pursue relevant studies.
