If you are concerned about your child's performance, please reach out to your child's Guidance Counselor or learn more about the educational support services we offer students. You can also keep track of your child's exam schedule and expected dates for progress reports to be mailed out on our Guidance Calendar.
Family vacations during scheduled school days will be considered unexcused absences. Students will be required to obtain work from their teachers before they leave for vacation. They must have their work completed and submitted to their teachers the day they return from vacation. Tests may be made up when it is convenient for the teacher. Davies strongly discourages the use of school days for family vacations.
Students absent from school are still responsible for the work missed. Please refer to the Student Handbook for guidelines.
To graduate, students must acquire a total of twenty-six and one quarter credits to receive a high school diploma.
