Flex Block
Students will have an alternating 25 minute afternoon flex block or break. Instructional themes relevant to each grade level are followed during Flex Block and students will receive a mark of either satisfactory or unsatisfactory intended to measure their engagement, participation, cooperation, etc.

During Flex Block, students in the 7th and 8th grades focus on acquiring good study skills and are also helped to prepare for the TCAP Test. Students in the 9th grade learn study strategies, and those in the 10th prepare for the Science and Reasoning Components of the ACT. Junior level Flex Block emphasizes preparation for the Math Component of the ACT and, as with the seniors, overall training for the rigors of college academics and life.
