The Rising School will focus on creating a great college-prep school that is one of the best academic schools in Arizona. TRS’s curriculum, instruction, and assessments will be aligned to Arizona’s current College and Career Readiness Standards (Common Core Standards + 2010 Arizona Additions) and CCRS-aligned assessments, such as the state standardized assessment exams. Courses will also incorporate college-readiness content and skills aligned to AP, ACT, SAT, and other assessments. Students assessed in the bottom quartile based on CCRS-aligned formative assessments in math, reading, and writing will be required to take, in addition to all of the core courses, an intervention course in math, reading, or writing. The school will employ other intervention strategies — including a study skills course, plentiful tutoring, and elements of the Response to Intervention program — as the school focuses on academic progress for every student.
