Dear Parents and Students:
Welcome to an exciting year of achievement.
Thank you for choosing GEO Next Generation High School. The beginning of each new year brings a measure of excitement and anticipation and the incredible opportunity to help students learn how to learn—and learn how to live. As a seasoned educator, I am extremely happy to be serving as the Interim Principal in this innovative school this year.
GEO Next Generation High School is a “School of the Future”. This year, students are coming in to a newly designed and marvelously constructed high school. This new facility will be amazingly different from their previous experience in school. It will be a stimulating experience for each student as we continue our rigorous college and career preparatory focus this year and commit to identifying and developing your child’s talents and potential each day.
The new building offers bright, open common spaces, and classrooms with floor-to-ceiling windows. Although there are solid walls, the school has an open feel about it. There are a variety of learning spaces for individual, small-group and large-group work as well as spaces for creating art and digital media projects. The building resembles a college campus. Even the gym looks like a professional sports arena. The large and wide open halls provide openings for smooth transitions. At present, students will be allowed limited movement because of Covid 19.
Students enrolled at GEO Next Generation High are provided an opportunity to participate in the GEO Early College Model and may be able to graduate with an Associates or Bachelor’s Degree. The program modeled after GEO 21st Century High School in Gary, Indiana offer Geo Next generation High School students an opportunity to take college classes while in high school. The student’s tuition is paid, textbooks are purchased and transportation is provided. Once enrolled in the program, the college and career counselor will work with individual students to select the most appropriate degree that fits with the student’s intended Bachelor program of study.
Expectations for student performance will be extremely high. Please work hard each day to make sure your child arrives at school on time. He or she is expected to complete all assignments and demonstrate model classroom behavior in order to achieve the targets we have set. We need your continued support to reach our A+ goal. We can do it.
We are going to have a great year working together!
Mrs. Thelemese Porter
