Block Scheduling is Back

Block Scheduling is Back

Over the years, Lisbon has been devoted to achieving academics excellence. The staff does their best to educate the students with the knowledge that they need to pass the AIR Tests. In the junior high, there used to be block scheduling that were two periods long for both Math and English. This year, they took the blocks out of the schedule and gave the students the opportunity to take a STEM class for the first semester. They brought block scheduling back this semester because there was not enough time to teach the students all of the materials they needed to be able to pass the AIR tests. The blocked periods are making a difference in the students’ academics already. Their grades are rising higher than ever before. The blocked periods are a good idea and are really working for the students here at Lisbon junior high school.
