About the Achievement Program
 
Welcome to the Taylor High School Achievement Program - a special place that is very different from the other classrooms you have attended. The Achievement Program offers over 40 different subject options, all presented in an individualized competency-based mastery model that accommodates a diverse range of learner needs.
 
Students enrolled in the classes in the Achievement Program will be using the GradPoint computer courseware; an approach to learning that does the following:
 
  • Encourages learners to study at their own level and move at their own pace
  • Creates a dynamic environment within which to practice and acquire skills
  • Provides precise measurement of the learner’s progress
  • Promotes individual accountability
