A pilot program at Deer Park Junior High will pair ambitious students with community leaders and mentors who can give real-world insights to careers, hobbies and other interests.
Dr. Tiffany Regan, DPJH principal, presented an overview of the proposed curriculum to the Deer Park Rotary Club Wednesday. The program, known as BIG RED – Building Innovation Growth and Rigor through Enrichment at DPJH, focuses on the strength, nature and needs of the gifted and advanced academic population of the school, Regan said.
BIG RED is made up of advanced-level, advanced-technology mini-courses that encompass each six-week grading period. Students will be able to choose their courses from a catalog, similar to course selection in high school and college.
