Freshman and Sophomore Orientation Planned For August 31, 2021
Dear Students and Parents/Guardians,
The 2021-2022 school year offers many opportunities. At Nyack High School, we offer a rigorous academic program with a variety of elective classes students can choose based on individual interests and goals. Students can enroll in one of two Project Lead the Way sequences, Authentic Science Research, performing arts courses, college and Advanced Placement courses, and courses to explore civil justice and race relations. We are working to offer materials and instruction that are culturally responsive and taught from multiple perspectives.
This year, our focus is on social-emotional learning. Students will attend homerooms and participate in classroom activities based on self-reflection, team building, and further development of interpersonal skills. School counselors are working with members of the staff to assist with activities designed to foster an environment which supports students as they continue to mature into productive and prepared citizens. Students are encouraged to participate fully in the school community, and to get involved with our many co-curricular clubs and athletic teams.
As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please call your child’s counselor, teachers, an assistant principal, or me.
We look forward to working with you his year, and are grateful for your continued support.
