Welcome to Peak High School!! Peak High School is an alternative school and is on the Wheatland High School campus. At Peak High School, we serve a variety of needs, such as students needing to make up credits, or needing to move faster through their courses. If your student is behind in credits, they are in jeopardy of not graduating on time. In order to offer the best chance at success, your student has been individually scheduled into course(s) at Peak High School to get caught back up. Students take Peak High School classes and Wheatland High School classes within the same school day. We work closely with Wheatland High School, and we follow the same bell schedule and student policies.
Our Peak High School students are enrolled in courses through an online service called Edgenuity. Our teachers help the students with coursework in the classroom, and track the student’s progress daily. This is considered a “blended learning” format since they have one-on-one help in class as they work through an online curriculum. One great thing about Peak High School is that students can work faster in order to get caught up! Students don’t have to wait for the semester to finish a class and move onto their next course! As a parent, you can expect weekly communication from your student’s Peak High School teacher(s). We pride ourselves on keeping families in the loop and working together for your child’s success! Edgenuity also offers progress reports to parents daily, weekly or monthly, so we need an accurate email account from parents. Please be sure to check this email often.
Students can work on their coursework at home, if they have internet access. They cannot take tests or quizzes at home. Tests and quizzes must be taken at school under teacher supervision. We have found that cell phones are a huge distraction to our student’s learning, so cell phone usage will be limited while they are in Peak High School classes. We’d be happy to go into more detail about this awesome opportunity for your student to get back on track for graduation.
