These classes are for special education students who are having difficulty in regular academic classes and need additional time to learn the basics. These students will be assessed several times during the school year through use of the TABE (Test of Adult Basic Education). Students who can increase their academic functioning levels to at least 7th grade level may qualify to transfer to North Shore Vocational College in Hammond for more individualized instruction in pursuit of their GED high school diploma. Students may also choose to stay at PHS and pursue this diploma option as well. Students must be at least 16 years of age or turn 16 during that school year. They must also be functioning at at least the 4th grade level to qualify. For additional information, please feel free to contact me.
