Learners in Lindsay High School English courses are able to simultaneously work through two years of content in a single year. For example, a skilled Learners may work on 9th grade standards in class and finish 10th grade standards at home, enabling the completion of two years of English in a single year. Facilitators who recognize students are ready for such a challenge can structure the Learners’s coursework in a way that allows them to work across grade levels. This strategy is enabled by two key factors:
- Lindsay High School allows Learners to move at a pace faster than a traditional time-based curriculum would.
- High School Common Core State Standards in English Language Arts are grouped in bands for grades 9-10 and 11-12, allowing Lindsay High School flexibility in its course design for Learners.
