From The Principal

One way to ensure that your student is college ready is for him/her to take an AP class next year. It is my expectation as Principal that every student takes at least one AP class and sits for the AP exam before he/she graduates from Ford. We know that students from Ford who take an AP class and sit for the exam are five times more likely not only to go to college but to graduate from college.
The world that our students will live in requires that they have an education beyond high school. Make sure that you strongly encourage your student to take an AP class next year. Remember, if you sign up for an AP class it is a commitment and you must remain in the course.

Please see the March newsletter SAT Prep class flyer, March 14th Kindness Day Remembrance, and April 10th and 11th Testing Information for additional information.

Our Vision
All students will be college ready as measured by the ACT College Readiness Benchmarks by the time they graduate.
