Student Success is a collaboration between the established TN Department of Education Student Success course and CHS's Freshman Mentor Program. In hopes of aiding the transition from middle to high school, teachers will lead curriculum over topics such as school smarts, the importance of soft skills, college and career planning, and academic pathways available within CHS. Each class will have assigned student mentors leading the Character Strong curriculum. Student mentors will also provide an ongoing orientation to CHS enabling freshmen to become familiar with the campus, policies, procedures, programs, traditions, and staff, while also increasing student awareness and involvement regarding academic, extra-curricular, and athletic activities. Supervised study will serve as a study period with the teacher mentor for some, while student mentor tutoring will be provided for those who need additional assistance with specific core classes. Student Success provides a balance of improving study habits, offering assistance in academic and career planning, access to student mentors, and practicing positive character building to enhance student success at CHS.
We cannot wait to meet you in August!
