Students enjoy greater flexibility with block scheduling. Each Block consists of on average 34-37 days. Arizona law requires that a student attend a set amount of time to receive credit. Therefore, if a student accumulates more than one absence during the block, the student may receive a letter grade of an “F” for that class. Any absences accumulated during the week must be flexed by day’s end Friday of the same week the absence occurred.
Students attend school for nine-week mini-semesters. This enables students to earn 6 to 10 credits per year, depending upon which option is chosen. This system offers students the motivational advantage of being able to earn a positive reward in a shorter amount of time. It also allows the student who has fallen behind to catch up and graduate before the end of the school year.
