Introduction
  • Nazareth Area High School is committed to supporting and improving the academic achievement of all students.

    • Enrichment – Students chose to participate in a variety of activities that aligned to a specific course or curricular area and provided additional learning opportunities
    • Intervention – Students received individual support from subject area teachers to address their specific needs
