We Did you know that Hayes Freedom High School is an innovative school of choice for ninth-twelfth grade students?
Hayes Freedom High School was founded on the principle that not all students thrive in a large, comprehensive high school environment. If your student may benefit from any of the following hallmarks of HFHS, she or he might want to get to know us!
Hayes Freedom High School offers:
• Small class sizes; usually about 20 students per class.
• Longer, intensely focused classes; students take three 1:40 core classes with a 30 minute advisory each day. This allows students more time with teachers, time to work on projects in
class, and a deeper understanding of material.
• Intentional, project-based learning; Hayes students are encouraged by teachers to approach assignments and projects in creative ways focusing on the learning styles of individual
• Strong relationships; with only a maximum of 200 students and ten teachers, students will have the same teachers for several subjects over time. This cultivates a tight-knit community
where students know teachers and teachers know students. Attending Hayes is like joining a family “where everybody knows your name.”
Students and parents are invited to come to Hayes Freedom High School to find out about our program. Please call Kristi Thomas at 360-833-5600 to schedule an appointment.
Starting this June, Juniors will take a New SAT.
This June, the SAT will have a new look and new scoring process. The SAT will be aligned with Common Core along with the following changes:
- The test will include three sections — evidence-based reading and writing, math, and an optional essay — each retooled to prevent students from simply filling in a bubble on the test sheet and instead justifying their answers.
- The test will shift from its current score scale of 2400 back to 1600, with a separate score for the writing which is technically optional but required by many colleges.
- No longer will test takers be penalized for choosing incorrect answers.
Something that is not different is that income-eligible students can receive fee waivers to take the test and also request up to 4 college application fee waivers when applying to colleges. See Ms. Ross for information about fee waivers.
To help prepare for the test you can go to the following websites:
