This is a 40-minute period held every Tuesday and Thursday between first and second periods that gives students the opportunity to form relationships with peers and teachers, access teachers for extra help, make up tests, and collaborate with other students on group projects.
Students report to their Spartan Hour teachers for attendance purposes at the start of each Spartan Hour. After checking in with that teacher, students that have a pass from another teacher will be able to go to that teacher's room for a specific instructional purpose. Each Spartan Hour class consists of students from the same grade level, assigned proportionally by last name. Each Spartan Hour group remains intact throughout a student's high school experience, encouraging the development of new relationships.
This structure was devised to also provide new opportunities to monitor student progress and provide academic interventions or extensions more uniformly.
