Grouping of Students

Queen of Peace High School makes every effort to group students in courses according to each one’s academic ability in order to motivate, challenge, and stretch the student to strive toward his/her academic potential.

Scholastic (S) – Courses designed for students of average to above average ability with average or above average work ethic. Such students need to strengthen their ability to work and learn more independently. Such courses cover college prep content, with teaching methods that challenge students to become more independent learners.

Accelerated (A) – Courses designed for students with exceptionally high ability and work ethic. Such students are expected to work and learn independently. Such courses are of college level content, teaching method, and teacher expectation.
