  • Prom

    Posted by Bobby Aultman on 5/24/2016
    Remember the senior year goes very fast, and we will quickly be approaching prom ticket sales.
     
    The prom will be on TBA at the Ocala Hilton.
     
    Ticket prices are still TBA.
     
    Remember students must be debt free and have at least a 2.0 cumulative GPA to attend.
     
    Only 11th/12th graders can purchase tickets, however their dates can be younger. Please be sure you have met debt and GPA requirements before purchasing any items such as dresses for the event.
     
    We do have a strict dress code expectation that will be shared on slideshows during lunches well in advance of the dance as well as printed for students to pick up with their tickets. Do not purchase any attire until you are sure it meets the dress code expectations.

  • Counselor Visits

    Posted by Bobby Aultman on 6/9/2015
    As a school counselor, I feel it is important students interact with me in my office and in the classroom, as well as on campus.
     
     
    Part of my mission to make sure I get the most information to the most students, I make small group presentations at least two times each school year. In the fall I typically meet with students in their English classes, in the spring I see them in History classes. These small group presentations consist of less than 15 students for more than 100 minutes.
     
     
    Class presentations include (but are not limited to):
    • Each student receiving an individual printout of the grades & test scores they have earned to date in their high school career, including their current grade point averages.
    • Graduation; requirements, checklists & myths
    • How to check grades & test scores, THE PORTAL
    • Each student receives a Florida Next Trend College and Career Preparation Magazine, and a thorough review of its contents, including Bright Futures information and college/university expectations, deadlines and some projected costs. Information about career prep and money management is also included.
    • An activity to review information on scholarships, community service expectations, the difference between state universities, colleges, state colleges, vocational/trade schools and private institutions.
    • ACT vs SAT; how to sign up and the differences between the tests
    • How to contact me & how to navigate my website

  • FCAT Prep

    Posted by Bobby Aultman on 1/13/2015
    If you did not earn a level 3 - you will have to retake the test until you pass the FCAT or earn a substitute score on ACT or SAT
     
    FCAT Reading is all computer based, and a two day test. We test multiple sessions each day, meaning some students will test in the morning group for two days and some will test in the afternoon group for two days.
     
    Students should check the list of names (posted on the bulletin boards in each building and near the stairwells in ("the round") building #1 for room and date assignments. The schedule, with names, should be posted within a week of the test date.
     
     
    Test prep materials can be found on the following websites:

  • Tutoring???

    Posted by Bobby Aultman on 10/16/2014
    Always start with your assigned classroom teacher.
    If your teacher is unavailable, you are welcome to seek assistance from another teacher (be sure to ask their schedule of availability).
    If you need additional resources, please contact the guidance office.
