Academic Support

ACADEMIC SUPPORTS, STRATEGIES AND SKILLS

It is always most beneficial to seek out help at the first sign of difficulty-  sometimes even meeting with a teacher or tutor once or twice can make a big difference!  Even “A” students may find it helpful to get extra help from time to time. However, especially if a student is at risk of earning a D or an F in a class, it recommended that they regularly meet with a tutor or teacher.  

LATE BUS:
(not currently available for the 2020-2021 school year) There is a free late bus on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays that leaves at 3:45pm from the bus loop near the cafeteria.

HELP DESK/ TECH SUPPORT
Mr. Wong and student volunteers are available in the back of the upper library to help you with your tech needs during school hours. Just scroll down the website (www.bhshelpdesk.com) and click Mr. Wong's Book Me link to schedule a tech appointment. Device insurance is also STRONGLY recommended (info is available on this link also).

TEACHERS:  
Teachers arrive by at least 8:20 a.m. every morning Monday-Friday & stay after school until at least 3:25 p.m., Monday- Thursday.  Let your teacher know if you would like help before or after school. They will let you know if they offer specific days or times for extra help.

GENERAL ACADEMIC TUTORS:
Adult tutors are available for general academic support before, during, and after school. This must be coordinated through with your School Counselor.

MATH TUTOR:
Mr. Lusas, Room 258B (top of the stairs from the library).  Make an appointment with the math tutor to meet during your study periods or before or after school (Monday- Thursday).  

PEER TUTORS
Upperclassmen who have taken and succeeded in classes volunteer to tutor other students.  This can be arranged in many subject areas.  It is recommended that students should continue to see their classroom teacher for help in addition to meeting with a Peer Tutor.  Go to https://bhs-peertutoring.weebly.com or see the Peer Tutoring wall in the library to choose an appropriate tutor.

READING AND WRITING SUPPORT:
(not currently available for the 2020-2021 school year) Advanced English students are available in the Writing Center in the library;  hours are posted
