Outreach students are required to meet the same standards as the full-time students with the exception of meeting with the teacher for 1 hour a week and 24 hours of homework completed at home.

(Apex is online courses with the student enrolled at Highlands High School as either a full-time or part-time student.)

Success Academy:

Success Academy is a credit recovery program at Highlands High School.  The expectation for a Success Academy student (including students with Apex courses) is to complete a .5 credit in a course in a semester.
