(Updated 12/14/22) Glendale Academy Model Updates
As we near the end of first semester, we will begin the planning for next school year. One piece of that planning process is the scheduling of students in courses. That process will begin with students in January, and conversations around scheduling are already taking place. Prior to scheduling, I wanted to share some important shifts in our academic programming with you. Glendale High School is an Academy High School. We work diligently to prepare students for their post high school experiences, whether that be entering the work force, the military, a two year or four year university. For the past four years we have been working within three Academies; STEM Academy, Business and Law Academy, and Technology and Design Academy.
After seeking and receiving feedback from the Glendale community, we have made the decision to expand our Academy model to offer additional options for students. A listing of the new Glendale Academy Model is linked below. Within the below link you will find six Academies: Health Services Academy, Industrial Technology and Engineering Academy, Human Services Academy, Natural Resources and Agriculture Academy, Business and Computer Technology Academy, and Arts and Communication Academy. You will also find the courses that students will take within the Academy of their choice.
As we begin to schedule students for next year, this information will be very important. All Glendale 10-12th grade students will be able to choose their Academy and the associated Pathway course, no matter what Academy they are currently in. We are hopeful that many students will continue in their current Academy and Pathway, but with the change, want to allow students to realign their Pathway choice with their interest. Your student’s counselor will meet with your student during scheduling at some time between January and March to discuss their Academy and Pathway choice. We strongly believe that this Academy expansion will be a positive change for our students, and thank you for your support as we work to help students explore their career and post-secondary options.

The A+ Program provides scholarship funds for eligible graduates to attend most Missouri community colleges and technical schools. In addition, several four-year Missouri colleges and universities offer their own scholarship for A+ qualified students. Last year our A+ graduates could earn as much as $10,000 towards their college tuition and general fees.
Glendale makes the A+ program fun by providing promotional activities and events each school year. Each year we have around 50% of graduates qualify for the A+ program. For more information about the Glendale A+ Program, students can check out their A+ CANVAS course which lists A+ Program Resources, visit the A+ website or follow us on Twitter @glendaleAplus.
If you have any questions please contact Jenny Cofield, Glendale A+ Program Coordinator.
Students needing free food, hygiene and/or clothing supplies… GHS is proud to have The Branch Hygiene, Clothing, and Food Outreach Program inventory available to our students at no cost! Please see Mr. Faucher or Mrs. Patton for any needs.
Please check your student's grades for seated courses in eSchool. We will continue to post student grades in eSchool. It is vital that students start strong. Please check your student's grades online, and communicate with your student's teachers. Our goal is that all students are academically successful, please encourage your student to submit all assignments.
If your student is taking a LAUNCH course or is fully virtual, their grades will be kept updated in Canvas.
eSchool is where you see your students' grades (completed assignments) and Canvas is where you see what they are doing, and what they will be doing (current and future assignments and learning).
Grades & D/F Phone Calls
Grades in eSchool are the official grades for seated students. GHS will continue sending phone messages to the homes of students who have a D or F in any of their classes. If you haven't started checking eSchool grades please do so. If you receive the phone call please check eSchool to see what class(es) your student has the D/F. We also recommend you contact the teacher with questions, concerns, or you feel an error has been made.
For clarification, the report used to determine who receives these calls runs at 4:30 a.m.
the day you receive the call. It is possible teachers update grades during the course of the
day. Again, please check eSchool on a regular basis and direct questions to the teacher(s).
For questions, please call 523-8900.
