Tutoring & Academic Support
Arrowhead High School strives for success for every student. A variety of options exist for students that are not progressing in their coursework. Teachers, instructional assistants, and student tutors work one-on-one or in small groups to offer help on homework, test preparation, and organizational problems.
Tutoring - Throughout the school day, teachers are available to work with students during their study hall. The Counseling Office and the Library have a list of the class periods and locations to go for assistance. Students may volunteer or be assigned (based on grades) to this special tutoring study hall option.
Learning Center - Students that are not performing in the classroom will be assigned to the Learning Center. Teachers and instructional assistants work with students to understand key concepts needed to raise their understanding and their grades!
NHS Student Tutor - The National Honor Society is available for one-on-one tutoring with students. The request form is located on the Arrowhead website (Activities, Clubs/Activities, National Honor Society). The students work together to find a common time to meet one or two times per week.
