What Is Different at Mountain High?
Mountain High School is the alternative high school in Davis School District. Students come by referral from all over the district. Here at Mountain High, we offer the following programs to help students:
Available from 3:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday.
Students can improve their basic skills in the afternoon program. They work on the GradPoint curriculum under the direction of a certified teacher. GradPoint is now available at your home through the internet. Individualized help is also available in Satellite School.
Perhaps you don't want to earn credit through an online program - a math teacher and a science teacher also provide instruction until 5:00 p.m., Monday through Wednesday for science, Monday through Thursday for math.
- Some students will be required to attend the satellite school. These are students whose credit totals are low and who need more credit than they can earn in day school.
Students meet with the independent study teacher twice a week to go over the work they have done at home. This is a rigorous program. It is for students who like to work on their own, who have good basic skills and are motivated to sit for long periods of time, studying! The Independent Study lab is open during regular school hours and IS students are required to work in the lab weekly.
Parenting Students -
Under the direction of the parenting instructor, students learn about pre-natal care, child development, and child care. They may apply for a place in the Child Development Center for their child during school hours.
Many students take career-preparation programs offered across the street at DATC. Their tuition is covered by the district, and they earn elective credit toward a high school diploma as well as progressing toward an industry-recognized certificate or license. Students may earn credit for working outside of school time for a licensed business. To earn credit, students sign up for work-based learning with our CTE coordinator, Kristi Yamada.
