Meaningful Evaluation & Individual Support for Students

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, 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

Writing reports for students is one of my favorite parts of my job. It allows me to communicate a full picture of the student’s performance beyond the “pass” and “fail” binary.
