Academic Support

Mentors
Our network of mentors guide and support students through their experience at KYHS. Every ninth and tenth grader is assigned a staff member to serve as their mentor. The mentor meets with individual students and serves as their guide toward navigating their academic and social lives in KYHS. 
 
Learning Specialist
Our learning specialist and guidance counselors meet with students who need some extra help in their studies. Students who require special accommodations in their learning environment are guided through the process by our learning specialist. 
 
Learning Center
The Learning Center at KYHS is designed for the student who can be successful in basic level classes but needs some assistance with study skills and organization. Students who receive support in the Learning Center participate in the the basic heterogeneous classroom and visit the Learning Center between eight and ten periods a week, depending on the students’ needs. The Learning Center is run by a certified special education teacher who sits in on some of the students' classes in order to better assist those students in those subjects as well as to better assist the teachers in meeting the students' needs.
