    What Does Prospects’ Independent Study (IS) Look Like?

    All students must meet with their IS teacher one time weekly for 1-2 hours on a specific day and time.

    All students must spend between 20 and 30 hours a week completing their homework at home.

    Most students need to attend at additional times for…

    • Algebra or other Math Class
    • Art Lab
    • Biology Lab
    • Collaboratory (study hall-this can be used as a place to complete some of their 20-30 hours of homework with a teacher present in case they need help.)
    • State Mandated Testing (9th, 11th and 12th graders in the Spring)

    Some students may choose to attend other optional opportunities such as…

    • Leadership Class
    • Culinary Internship (with parent permission AND approval of administration)
    • Articulated College and Career Class
    • Dual Enrollment Spanish Class
    • Concurrently enroll in LMC classes to earn 3.3 credits of electives on your high school transcript for every 1 unit at LMC (i.e., 3 unit LMC course = 10 elective credits at PHS)
