Class on the weekend? Not a problem.

H.A.S.S. scholars hard at work... on the weekend

To paint an accurate picture of the situation at H.A.S.S., we must say that these students have never worked so hard in their life. Due to our trip to the McWane Science Center, we were obligated to make up the lost work the next day. Please find below a schedule of our workday on this particular Sunday.

We are pushing the students at H.A.S.S. to limits that they did not know existed before this summer. The scholars are constantly surprising themselves with how much they can achieve when they sit down and focus their minds on a goal. Even though we have gone on many trips and extra-curricular activities, the students enrolled within this summer school have not lost sight of their academic goals. They are here to learn. Did we mention these kids are only 14 years old?
