The academics of this school is what drives people to it. SOAR High School is an early-college high school which lets students take up to eleven units of college credits per semester, and sometimes students get their Associates Degree. That is just the college though; at the high school, teachers make sure they stick with the common cores for their class, but also add spice to their classrooms by having hands on activities along with other activities to suit auditory, visual, and kinesthetic learners. The classes are all high-paced intense classes with heavy workloads inside the classroom, but the students get little homework because the teachers understand we also focus on our college classes. The scheduling includes the seniors and juniors in the morning and the sophomores and the freshmen at noon or so. Most freshmen and sophomores take core classes, but juniors and seniors get more electives in their schedules as they have already taken a lot of core classes on the A-G list. Students are allowed to use any resources on the college campus to aid them on what they feel they might need help on, which helps the students soar in their academics.
