Academic Achievements

At Encore, students have several opportunities to work on their academic achievements.  The red letter “E” for Letterman’s sweaters and jackets signifies academic achievement.  Students can get the red letter “E” for having perfect attendance for the entire school year, earning a 3.0 or higher Grade Point Average at the end of each semester, or scoring ADVANCED on both sections of the CAASPP test.

JUNIOR HIGH & HIGH SCHOOL ACADEMIC LETTERS

Students that have earned a 3.0 or higher will receive a certificate in February for Semester 1 and in the following September for Semester 2.  The certificates can be taken to the student store to redeem for the red letter “E” or for the service bars that go with them.  Each student can receive one small red letter “E” in junior high AND THEN one large letter “E” while in high school.  The sweaters and jackets can be ordered and purchased from the student store (Hesperia) or third floor services (Riverside).

PERFECT ATTENDANCE

Consistent attendance is imperative to academic achievement.  For students that have perfect attendance, this means that you are present and on time for every class during a calendar month, you will receive a $10 coupon toward the purchase of a Letterman’s sweater or jacket.

ACADEMIC RENAISSANCE RALLY

At the end of the first semester, students that have earned an academic GPA of 3.0 or higher are recognized as part of the Renaissance rally in February.  The themes change and are set by Encore’s ASB department.  There are three levels of recognition for students with academic achievement.

  1. HONORS – students that have earned an academic GPA 0f 3.0  – 3.49 during the first semester will receive a certificate.
  2. HIGH HONORS – students that have earned an academic GPA of 3.5 – 3.99 during the first semester will receive a certificate and a special gift (usually ice cream or candy).
  3. DEAN’S HONORS – students that have earned an academic GPA of 4.0 or higher during the first semester will receive a certificate and a special party (usually lunch and a movie).
