What Students are Saying (2021/2022):

What students like best about APH?

What do you like best about APH?
  • Extra support received by APH teachers:
    • “I like how the APH teachers put in a lot of extra effort to help us succeed.”
    • "Having 2 teachers in a class; like if the main teacher is teaching somthing else and you need help with another work, they're right there to help you."
    • "I like that there's less students because it makes us closer and easier to make friends withing APH."
    • "That it helps us get our credits to be in the actual grade we have to be instead of being fully reclassified."

What does APH mean to our students?

What does APH mean to you?
  • A second chance/opportunity to make-up credits:
    • “APH means to me a second chance at something because when I was at my lowest last year I thought it was just done for me and I was gonna become a freshman and not be able to do so many things with my friends but mostly graduate with them. But the APH program gave me a second chance and gave me everything I needed to be back on track which I'm extremely grateful for.”
    • “APH to me means a program that keeps you on track, not lose motivation and teaching us that anything is possible to continue doing good in life.”

What skills are students learning in APH?

What skills, that you learned in APH, will you take with you next year?
  • Staying organized, turning in work, and meeting new people:
    • "How to stay organized.”
    • "A skill I've been learning in APH that i will take with me for next year is how to keep track of all assignments I have to turn in and finishing them on time."
    • "I am better at turning in work."
    • "The skills of meeting new people and learning how to work with a specific environment."

What is the At-Promise House (APH)?

An "At-Promise" student by definition is a “student who may fail to earn a high school diploma for a variety of reasons, including irregular attendance, low motivation, a past record of academic underachievement, economic disadvantage, or low scores on math or English standardized tests."
 
The APH program is a "school-within-a-school" for any CUHSD student that earned 15 credits or less in their 9th grade (Freshman) year, and incoming 9th graders that stuggled in middle school and did not meet promotion criteria.  
 
Students will attend APH core academic classes (English, Math, Science, and Art) with dedicated staff. All APH core classes are much smaller in size, and there is also an Instructional Aide in each of these classes. Electives, PE, and other specialized classes will be taken in regular CUHS classrooms. Students will have the opportunity to accelerate learning or catch up on credits without leaving the comprehensive school. APH students will be able to particpate in all regular CUHS activities, including athletics. Additionally, our APH counselor is dedicated to working solely with APH students in order to be available when needed, and meet their social, emotional, behavioral, and academic needs.
 
APH began Fall 2021, and we are now in our second school year. The majority of our students are Freshmen (class of 2026) this 2022-2023 school year.
