EVEREST HIGH SCHOOL 2018-2019 ANNUAL REPORT

I welcome your review of the 2019-2020 Annual Report.  Everest High School is state chartered as a Dropout Prevention and Recovery Conversion Community School and is sponsored by Saint Aloysius.  Established in July, 2010, Everest High School provides a safe, structured, and inviting school environment that is ideal for students:

=         who need an educational program and environment suitable to meet their needs,

=         with disabilities receiving support via an IEP or 504 plan,

=         who are employed part-time of full-time and need a flexible school schedule,

=         who desire to work at an accelerated pace and recover high school credits.

The mission of the Everest High School is to provide its students a customized and personalized educational experience leading to high school graduation and meaningful post high school employment, or successful transition to post high school education.  Fortunately, the State of Ohio, through its support of charter schools is affording parents and student the opportunity to “choose” the school they would like to attend instead of being forced to attend a “one size fits all” high school.

Everest High School provides its students a comprehensive high school educational program tailored to meet the needs of its students.  Upon enrollment, each student is provided an Individual Graduation and Career Plan that will help the staff monitor course completion, credit status, and career goals for individual students.  In addition to the core curriculum provided to each student through the APEX Learning System, students receive tutoring to:

=         help them successfully pass all sections of the Ohio Graduation Test,

=         help them complete assignments and pass mastery tests related to their academic course,

=         help them learn job-related readiness skills.

The Everest High School web-based APEX Learning System provides students with a curriculum that is carefully structured to meet the instructional standards required by the State of Ohio.  Remedial and AP (Advanced Placement) courses are available to meet the needs of all learners.  All Everest students must demonstrate mastery of the Ohio Common Core Learning Standards in each course to earn high school credit.  All Everest High School teachers and support staff are licensed and certified by the State of Ohio and meet the Highly Qualified Teacher Status as mandated by Every Student Succeeds Act.  In addition to the academic course offerings provided by Everest High School, students are given the opportunity to work with a Career Coach for mentoring and guidance to post-graduation career possibilities.  Students who provide volunteer service to community agencies or who are employed can earn 1 to 2 high school work-study credits.

With the cooperation of business leaders, our Sponsor, and parents, Everest High School is providing students age 16-21 an opportunity to earn their required graduation credits and prepare themselves for a successful post high school education and/or career.

Respectfully,

James M. Fullen

Superintendent

2018-2019 STATE REPORT CARD SUMMARY REPORT

Everest High School exceeded state standards in the 4 yr., 5 yr., 6 yr., 7 yr., and 8 yr. graduation cohorts. The combined graduation rate at Everest High School (61.3%), as reflected in the chart below; it is higher than all dropout recovery programs in the State (see chart below). Everest High School did not meet standards in the area of progress on state tests and Annual Measurable Objectives (AMO) which looks at the number of students who passed all of these end of the course tests. Based on the most recent data, Everest High School received a rating of Does Not Meets Standards on the 2019-2020 State grade card in large part because not enough kids were tested to create scores in all of the categories measured by the State.  This is the first time Everest High School has received this rating and our staff is working hard to remedy the testing situation.
