Lancer House - The Lancer House is an alternative in-house program for select freshmen and sophomore students who are most at-risk of failing. Academically, the program supports students making progress toward attaining core credits necessary for graduation. Students are instructed by a group of committed teachers who utilize differentiated instruction. The program also supports social and emotional growth by promoting strong peer and student-teacher relationships, personal responsibility, and high expectations. In short, students are placed in this sub-group of the Excel Program to ensure a strong start to high school. The program has an instructional assistant (Program Coordinator) who is available to assist teachers and students. The Program Coordinator works as a classroom aid with Lancer House students in their classrooms and socially/emotionally, if necessary. During scheduled study halls, students meet with the Program Coordinator for homework completion support and assistance with study skills, and organization. The Program Coordinator is responsible for monitoring student progress and family communication.
