Afterschool Programs

My daughter has benefited from the program. I am very pleased with the help she is receiving!

-GEM Parent

I like the G.E.M. Program because it's a calm place where I can do my work. I also like it because I can talk with my friends and get their view on hte work I'm doing.

-Katlyn Cunningham

I enjoy the GEM Program because I get the help I need and every teacher is so nice.

-Summer Childress

I think the Afterschool Program has influenced my son and motivated him this year to do better in school! Thanks so much for helping him.

-Afterschool  Parent

The teachers are so helpful, sweet, and active. My grades are so good. This helps me a lot.

-Tomi Kegley

I like the Afterschool program because it lasts a long time, walks, and how later by 5:00 you can talk if you have no homework. Also, peer help is SO helpful!

-Bo Mann

Ms. Demma helped me in English greatly. Mrs. Strong has also helped me make an A on my Geometry quiz.

-Nathassia Duffy


I wasn't doing all of my homework and turning it in. And now I am turning it in and understanding it.

-Nikolas Dillow
Afterschool has helped me get caught up on my classes a lot so I don't fail.
As a result of the Afterschool program I have brought up my grade in Bridge Math and made a better grade on my last test.

-Jennifer Tedrick

My teachers are great in the Afterschool program!!

--Alexis Kegley

I was struggling until I came to the program. I redone a test that I originally made a 41. I got shown how to do it and made a 77.
I brought my grade up from a C to a B.

-Dakota Marrs

Without the Afterschool Program I would not have been able to graduate early. It is great to have at THS. I know GEM will be great for every student if needed. Again thank you to everyone who helped me get through my credit recovery. I could not have done it without Afterschool.

-Shelby McAnally

I have gotten the help I needed in Bridge Math to bring my grade up from a 67 to an 89. We get plenty of help in the areas of study we need. There are also plenty of teachers there for assistance. Because of the Afterschool Program I can now graduate early in December.
