Key Messages to the LBHS School Community
Welcome to all of our students, parents and guardians. Please read the information below for some important news and updates!
Advanced Placement/ACL Information Evening
The ACL/AP Information Evening is scheduled for January 9, 2014 at 6:30 p.m. in the Lord Beaverbrook High School Theatre. Prospective students, parents and guardians interested in learning more about either program are invited to attend.
Advanced Placement and Celebration of Academic Success
Academic success can mean a great many things. It is my intent to highlight stories of academic success for all of our students at Lord Beaverbrook High School. In this feature, the focus is on Advanced Placement.
The Advanced Placement Program at LBHS continues to grow. Enrollment has almost doubled in less than two years. This is very encouraging. Most recently, former students at LBHS have received special recognition from the College Board for their individual achievements. Jacob J. completed five AP examinations and scored 4 or higher on all of his exams. This achievement resulted in his being named an AP National Scholar. This is a significant achievement as fewer than 3000 AP students in the nation receive this award.
LBHS is proud to have five students named as AP Scholars. AP Scholars are those students whom have completed at least three AP examinations, attaining a score of at least 4 or higher on each AP exam.
Sydney B. achieved a score of 5 on her AP Art Portfolio. This is an extremely rare accomplishment. Sydney’s personalize program allowed her to pursue Arts Centered Learning (an area of passion!), combined with Advanced Placement and involvement in Athletics at LBHS.
Congratulations to these students for their accomplishments and best wishes for continued academic success to our current students enrolled in AP courses.
As previously mentioned, 2013-14 enrollment at Lord Beaverbrook High School was higher than anticipated. This is very positive news. To partially address this increase in enrollment, three teaching staff positions will be hired for semester two. There will be teaching positions created in Mathematics, Social Studies and Science. In addition, there will be a Instructional Support Worker position hired as soon as possible. Hiring an Instructional Support Worker will assist us to support and re-engage students in their high school program. More information will be shared regarding these exciting additions to our staff prior to the winter break.
To all of our students – remember - do your BEST!
Jim Simpson, Principal
