High school students have more options in course selection. Based on academic performance and attendance, students also may have the opportunity to apply for asynchronous status allowing for more flexibility in their learning. Agora utilizes the Desire 2 Learn platform to provide the high school online school campus and courses. The school site features school announcements, messages from the administration, access to important documents, club and organization information, resources, and courses. The student calendar, which shows assignments and due dates for all courses in one easy-to-use tool, helps students to stay focused in every course. Courses consist of multiple units, lessons and activities. Highly-qualified teachers provide differentiated instruction, practice, exploration, and routinely assess student learning in all of our courses. Teachers post a syllabus in the course that includes important information related to the course such as late work policy, contact information and materials/resources needed for the course, as well as weekly announcements indicating the lessons, activities and assessments to be completed each week.
