We are thrilled to have you as a student as well as part of the Coolidge family. We look forward to the opportunity to support you as start a new chapter in your educational journey. 

    As the students transition to high school, we encourage them to get off to a strong start in every class and take every opportunity their instructors provide to sharpen their academic and social skills. Focusing on maintaining good habits such as coming to school consistently and reporting to each class on time and being ready to participate is the start of being successful. They have already laid the foundation and this year is the year they truly start to build yourself into the college and career-ready student we all know you can be. We will be exploring more of this information during the New Student Orientation on August 25.
