The A+ School Program is a school-improvement initiative
established by the Outstanding School Act of 1993. The program is
raising academic standards, opening new doors to higher education
an introducing students to the teaching profession through tutoring
and mentoring activities.
The focus of an A+ School is on what the student can do. Can the
student actually apply his or her knowledge? Can the student
demonstrate that he or she has developed the needed skills?
This programs provides incentives for local high schools to:
reduce the dropout rate,
raise academic expectations and eliminate “general track” courses,
provide better “career pathways” for all students,
develop a school/business partnership plan to work more closely with business
and for higher-education leaders,
establish measurable performance standards for individual courses
and for graduation, and
provide rigorous course work with standards of competency in all
The A+ Schools’ concept expects All Students to achieve at a high level.
The faculty and staff of Potosi High School continue to gain knowledge and enhance course work to
meet the needs of all our students.
