In an Upper School with offerings more typical of a college, the ways to success are many. At HIES, it's part of the plan.
When a student arrives in Upper School, we meet with the family to create a four-year plan. We talk about interests and goals. We talk about academic courses and activities. And each year, we meet again to review and assess the plan.
It makes sense. When you attend a high school with as many opportunities as HIES, you want to make the most of them. Academic courses? Where else can you study Meteorology and Engineering and Film & TV Production? Sports teams? We have 38 of them! Arts offerings? More than 40! Student clubs? There's barbecue, fly fishing, rock climbing, knitting and dozens of other clubs!
The Upper School offers nearly 30 Honors and Advanced Placement classes to choose from. That is more than any other school in Metro-Atlanta.
