OUR EARLY COLLEGE PROGRAM

Grades 9-12 High School

Since its inception in 1997, LGECHS and AMGMS have continued to serve the specific educational needs of minority students in the Tucson area.  LGECHS is Arizona’s first early college high school program accepted into the Early College Initiative funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. Our program is also sponsored by The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and the National Council of La Raza (NCLR).  LGECHS is part of a national initiative to make higher education more accessible to minority students by bridging the gap between high school and college.  Students will begin taking college classes during their junior year. What this means for you as parents is that the teaching staff is committed to giving your child the best possible academic preparation for college.  The teachers will:

  • Use research-based teaching strategies
  • Have high expectations and standards for all students
  • Use small, personalized learning environments with not more than 20 students per classroom
  • Insist on respect and responsibility among and between students and teachers
  • Include parents and the larger community in an educational partnership
  • Emphasize student performance with promotions based on demonstrated competencies
  • Use technology as a teaching tool to design and deliver a curriculum that is engaging and imaginative
  • Develop students self esteem and positive character
  • Enhance AMGMS student’s abilities for a smooth transition into LGECHS
  • Strengthen partnerships with the University of Arizona and Pima Community College


Partnerships


Our partnership with Pima Community College.  Pima Community College allows our students to take college classes while still in high school without having to leave our high school campus.  In order for students to be able to take these classes, they must first be assessed so they can be placed in appropriate courses.  Pima personnel come to our school and administer this important assessment in the Spring.  All of our sophomores and those juniors and seniors who have not yet assessed into Pima coursework take this assessment. After our students are accepted into Pima, they are welcome to use all of Pima’s facilities and services after they get their student ID cards.

Unique Partnerships-Memberships
We are a member school of National Council of La Raza (NCLR).  This organization helps with our literacy program by providing expertise in the area of Latino literacy and some funding to support our literacy program.

We are a member school of the Jobs for the Future (JFF) organization. This organization is funded through the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.  Their program concentrates on developing small high schools into early college high schools.  We are the only school in Arizona to be designated an early college high school through this foundation.  They also help with our literacy program by providing teacher institutes and some funding to support our literacy program.  During school year 2006-2007 they provided their consortium schools with memberships to North West Evaluation Association.  This association provides assessment testing that teachers can use to drive their curriculum building and lesson planning in order to individualize instruction.
