9th Grade Program

Overview 

Each ninth-grader will be a part of a ninth-grade team, with faculty members who teach in the content areas of English/Language Arts and American Government. This team of teachers and students will stay together all  year, engaging in team‐building, goal‐setting, learning, collaboration, inquiry and reflection.

Program Description

At  Eastview,  we  share  a  collective  commitment  to creating  the  conditions  for a  successful  transition  to high school for our incoming ninth graders.  We strive to  make  the  transition  a  positive  experience  for  all. We are committed to preparing all students for post‐
secondary success, ready for college and careers.  We believe  that  all  students  can  learn,  regardless  of background or past performance and experience.   

Each ninth grader will be a part of a ninth grade team, with faculty members who teach in the content areas of English/Language Arts and American Government.  This team of teachers and students will stay together all  year,  engaging  in  team‐building,  goal‐setting, learning, collaboration,  inquiry  and  reflection.  Collectively,  these  teachers  will  build  ongoing relationships  with  students  and  their  parents/guardians, and set the expectations and tone for  their  next  four  years  at  Eastview  High  School.  Students  can  expect  a challenging  academic experience and rigorous curriculum, coupled with the support  necessary  for  each  individual  student  to succeed.   

In addition, this team will help students grow in such areas  as  study  skills,  decision  making,  goal  setting, problem solving, digital citizenship and an awareness of  opportunities  that  are  ahead  at  Eastview  High School.    We  will  also  monitor  student  progress  and  partner  with  the  student’s  larger  school  team (including  school  counselors,  case  managers, administrators and other support staff) as needed in order  to  ensure  success.    We  believe  that  by developing  these  relationships,  building  these important  skills  and monitoring  progress,  we  will increase the success for all students at Eastview High School.
