West Hartford’s Hall High School will hold its annual Curriculum Night on Wednesday, Sept. 13.
How do West Hartford’s high schools consistently place in the top tier of educational rankings compiled by national news media?
Some would argue it’s strictly a numbers game – the percentage of students enrolled in advanced placement (AP) classes, or the number of students who test at a certain proficiency in reading and mathematics. While administrators and faculty at William H. Hall High School appreciate the value of those numbers and the laudable rankings associated with them, they know that the backbone of their profession lies in teaching to the whole student and preparing him or her for life beyond high school. And this is what they are excited to present to parents and students at Hall’s annual Curriculum Night on Sept. 13, 2017.
String quartets, jazz ensembles, “living” paintings presented by drama students; food demos, robots and 3D printing, choral groups, and parent mini-classes on helping teens cope with stress or working with IEPs and 504 plans – these are just a few of the highlights being organized by Hall High School staff to showcase Hall’s many curriculum offerings and supports.
The school store will be open for business, and the Hall High School PTO will be on hand with treats, beverages, merchandise, and directories. And all of these events are in addition to the typical curriculum event activities, like meeting teachers and following students’ daily schedules.
By presenting some of Hall’s varied offerings and opportunities for involvement alongside its top-notch academics, administration and faculty hope to make this year’s Curriculum Night one of the most exciting and successful to date.
Curriculum Night will take place at William H. Hall High School on Wednesday, Sept. 13, 2017, 7 to 9 p.m.
Show up a few minutes early to check out the offerings from the PTO and the Hall School Store!
Also – be sure to print out a copy of your student’s schedule before you arrive and bring it with you.
