Finals begin on Monday, December 12th and run through Friday, December 16th – depending on your student's classes. You might have some questions and we hope this helps explain the schedule.
Each day of Finals, the students are scheduled to take two finals –a morning final and an afternoon final. Your student depending on their class schedule, might take two finals or just one. Let’s say if your student isn’t taking a World Language class this year (Spanish or Latin), then they would only have one final on Friday, December 16th. They would arrive to school around 11:30 AM to check in and prepare for their 12:00 PM Social Studies final.
Conflict Exams are for students who are taking multiple classes in the same subject area and need to schedule a Conflict Exam. An example is if a student is taking two Science classes like AP Physics and Anatomy in the same semester. The Science final is scheduled for Monday, December 12th and the student cannot be in two science finals at the same time. The school’s academic department will arrange for the student to take their second science final on a Conflict Exam day. It is also the student’s responsibility to confirm this prior to the start of the Final Exam weeks. If your student doesn’t need a Conflict Exam, then it is a day off to study.
Final Exams with Accommodations – these are pre-scheduled with the academics department. If you feel your student needs to schedule a final exam with accommodations, please contact the Director of Curriculum & Counseling, Brittany Guerra ([email protected]) as soon as possible.
Please encourage your student to get lots of rest and eat a good breakfast. Lunch is not served during finals in the Café so students should bring their lunch. Students cannot leave campus for lunch. The Café will be serving ‘break foods’ from 11-12. Students should also bring a bottle of water. Otherwise, their teachers will let them know what materials they will need for their finals (pencils, calculators with extra batteries…). The dress code is relaxed during testing, the student will be informed of what they can and can’t wear and we will include it in the Royal Pride Weekly newsletter.
*Be sure to have your student eat a healthy breakfast and get rest. This can be a stressful time for them.
