Study Skills

Study skills are very crucial to a student's success in school. Freshman year, every student will hear a presentation from their counselor in their English class regarding study skills, learning styles, and smart goals. If the student is still struggling significantly in this area, they can meet with their counselor individually for more help.

*If you do not have a study hall, please stop in during your homeroom or lunch. Please see the links below for additional help.
