Meaningful Evaluation & Individual Support for Students
Growing up comes with great opportunities and challenges. Adolescents grapple with questions of identity, purpose, belonging, personal values, and what the future holds. At the same time, they are learning to balance school, jobs, homework, sports, relationships, and extracurricular activities.
At Youth Initiative, we understand adolescents. We provide challenge and support, responsibility and freedom, structure and independence. From our small classroom size to our unique Care Group system of support, we are able to pay close attention to each student, to meet them where they are, and to help them grow and flourish in the ways they need most.
Our faculty members write detailed reports of student progress for each class weekly, so parents and students can track growth and look for areas of improvement. These reports reveal far more about each student’s capabilities, contributions, and areas of challenge than a letter grade ever could.
Collectively, these narrative reports also create an impressive transcript that helps Youth Initiative students stand out in the college application process.
In-Depth & Individual
YIHS does not use letter grades, and does not rank students in any manner. Instead, our Weekly and Final Reports provide thorough and personalized assessments geared toward growth and achievement.
