Let’s Breathe Some Light Together
Educators of Dragons
Welcome Back, Dragon Families!
We are off to a great start for the new school year. We have a record enrollment of 385 students, 40 students over last year’s enrollment. We are happy that so many people want to come to Bioscience High School, the number one-rated small public high school in Arizona.
Last year’s graduates are headed off to Notre Dame, Bowdoin, Wellesley, Stanford, and Lewis and Clark colleges, in addition to many others. They are headed to ASU and U of A and Grand Canyon University for free, thanks to their hard work and their preparation at Bioscience. They are entering college with internship and real world experience. They are leaders who will be active in their campus life and community. We are very proud of them and look forward to hearing about all of their adventures and opportunities.
Our theme this year is “Educators of Dragons.” We take our role as educators very seriously. Our students are precious individuals who will shape our society in positive ways if we inspire them to do so. We honor the trust that parents put in us to educate and care for their children. We consider ourselves Mothers of Dragons and Fathers of Dragons alongside of parents. It is our goal to help students develop both academically and emotionally so that they are well-adjusted, happy, and healthy.
This year, our campus is embracing “Restorative Practices,” practices that build community among staff and students and that help us to restore relationships when there is conflict or harm done. All staff are being trained in community and relationship building in addition to strategies for restoring relationships after conflict. In addition, we are working to improve our customer service to parents and students. We appreciate any feedback you give us on how we are doing.
We look forward to a fun and transformative school year with you and your students. Please let us know how we can help make your student’s high school experience the best it can be.
Dragon eggs waiting to hatch.
